      Hello cekpirus88,

      Against his stack I doubt that there is much to do. But myself I would just 3bet-ship vs his stack. :P

      Against full stack we might even consider Bet/Folding at some point without knowing the opponent and being in multiway pot. Or Bet/Calling it once and reevaluating it on the turn.

      Best Regards.

      Hi cekpirus88,

      It seems fine. Quite a big bet on the flop though. $0.60- 0.65 should be fine. If you're betting this much against a shorty then he's committing himself especially once he 3-bets you obviously. As played, pretty standard, not much you can do once the money goes in. You must always have a plan and it seems that your plan was that you were prepared to go all of the way with the hand and you did so all pretty standard.

      Thanks

      hi thanks, i guess I would have folded pre flop with a raise of the short stack, but seeing the flop I just see very few hands beating me. what about the raise pre fold, on the button is better always a raise 3x than 4x?

      When we are against a smaller stack then 3x is totally fine and also if you have a wider opening range.
