      Villain had a similar small 30 BB stack on a couple of tables I was seated at. Should I assume he was playing a short stack strategy? What is the best way to treat this? I was slightly on tilt when making this raise but I often make this kind of play when facing a short stack. Is this correct? I know there was the initial raiser aswell but it seemed like a standard raise from him and I had seen him fold similar spots

      Hello 0744379,

      Well, I guess it's pretty much a flip anyways. :P So if you want to take it then sure why not against a mid-stack shouldn't be a problem. I really doubt that he is following any strategy with his stack size.

      Best Regards.
