      Hello staktas,

      Doesn't make sense to Call the flop vs his stack, rather just get it in or just fold it. :) Why do you want to give him free cards or even Check behind option?

      Best Regards.

      Isn't calling the flop better than folding. We only need to get to the river and be good less than 1 in 5 times and sometimes Villain will give up on a bluff or semi-bluff or have a random 9. How does Villain's stack change this?

      Cause his range may contain enough of draws there and of course even 9x hands and maybe worse PPs. So I don't really see any reason why hero should be Bet/Calling flop and Check/Calling turn & river like this. If he goes broke anyways then at least he protects his hand and as I mentioned avoids the opponent getting a free card.

      His stack allows us go broke looser.
