      0.05/0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (7 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant.Base 0.98 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is BB with J:heart: , J:diamond:
      4 folds, BU raises to $0.30, SB folds, Hero raises to $1.00, BU raises to $1.70, Hero raises to $4.10, BU calls $2.30 (All-In), Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Flop: ($8.05) A:diamond: , K:club: , 5:heart:
      Turn: ($8.05) 7:club:
      River: ($8.05) 2:diamond: (2 players)

      Final Pot: $8.05

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      BU shows a pair of queens (Qd Qc)
      Hero shows (Jh Jd)

      BU wins with a pair of queens (Qd Qc)

      This was early on at a new table, so no reads and stats don't mean much.

      I frequently play more aggressive against shorter stacks, both because they seem to nurse their stacks more (i.e. play tighter), and because there is less of my stack at risk. Is this a pretty fair assumption do you think?

      Hello Pilks7,

      Against BU stack I doubt that it's even wrong to go broke. He most likely even has a wide BU range and might think that we are playing back against him. Nice hand!

      Best Regards.
