      Given he is first to act I gave him a lot of credit with his raise. Most of the time I would squeeze with these queens but against a 3% raiser I think this would be a mistake? (please correct me if I'm wrong), I don't want to be 3 bet/folding too much against a shortie. I decide to set mine given the CO called with nearly a full stack. Does this seem reasonable? What would be the best line to take here, including preflop?

      Also what would my best line have been if the CO had not called? I assume 3 bet/fold or should I just get it in against a shortie (even one this tight)?

      Hello nonamesleft,

      I'd start betting right on the flop myself already and protect my hand from any kind of draws. If he has a hand he is willing to pay and if not then he wont pay much anyways. Or either way even Check/Raise the flop.

      Best Regards.
