      a) I would play this hand according to his Fold to Flop C-bet. High fold to c-bet => Bet. Low fold to c-bet => check/call or rather check fold depending on his bet size.

      b) As he is shortstack and we have only two overcards with some backdoor draws I would rather fold agains his min raise.

      Hello MisClick,

      While having backdoors and maybe even could be ahead I'd still CB it here. Of course he is super loose but there are enough of cards which we can 2nd barrel.

      If we get raised then of course fold, no point to Call cause you don't have the implied odds.

      Best Regards.
