      Just calling preflop is ok? I think we could also have easy play by 3beting, because he will not know what to do OOP post flop if he call our 3bet. But his stack is small, so he might stack off light, so thats the main problem.

      Hi, SPeedFANat1c!

      Since he does have a broken stack and we don't know himself so well I don't mind just calling. By doing this we keep a nice SPR thus maximize our position. If we knew he was a good player, either with a middle of a full stack, then things would be different.

      As played I think is fine. I'd usually bet a tiny bit more on the flop, like $0.45, as there are a few hands to call that are pretty inelastic (any high :club: he's calling, pocket with :club: his probably calling, trash without :club: he will fold anyway). Thus far there is no need to balance for when we will bluff those boards.

      When the A comes I think betting a bit less makes sense, even considering he might spew with a 5 and stuff like that.

      Anyway, well played, even though the raise on the river is a bit thin.
