      Hi,

      I likely would fold to turn potsize bet, also I think folding pf would be better play, since his stack is so small and if you hit your tp you likely have to play for stacks, although against min-raise call is likely also fine.

      Best regards,

      Fold preflop against his stacksize tbh. I am either 3 betting or folding and as he will call to many 3 bets I would fold. But if the fish was 100 bb deep then I would play a hand like this in position.
