      Hello Sikac,

      Against such a stack I don't like that much your Call preflop. I'd rather just 3bet it preflop if I expect him opening more hands and then just play for the stacks. Also I'd advice to switch tables if you only have shorties around. :D

      But as played I'd still make a normal amount of Check/Raise, he will have hard time Calling with a lot worse.

      Best Regards.
