      Pf without a position it should be a value raise vs BU instead of just calling.

      On the flop I'd donk for value and to prevent BU checking back just in case. After his pot bet, as played, vs this aggressive i'd stack OOP but all in all we should be very careful on monotone boards with deeper effective stacks. But vs this one it's probably ok.

      Flat called to keep his range wide and to keep in all Ax hands I dominate. 3betting would force these hands to fold and most likely isolate ourself against better hands.

      Jammed flop for value vs all drawing hands and weaker made hands

      i agree to the point of keeping the range wide while playing in position and with deeper effective stacks but oop and vs bad shortie it's a value 3bet pf.

      Hi gxtwo,

      Keep in mind that the short stack is probably a bad player which will call with lots of worse Ax, Kx and also maybe shove worse.

      BTW, AKo is almost always a 3bet SB vs BU, should have a very good reason not to do so.

      Ok, so we 3bet to $1.20-$1.60... BU calls, how do we proceed? BU has about potsized left in his stack, Jam every flop?

      Even against a tag with 100bb efective stacks you wouldn't agree there's more value in calling with a hand that dominates his stealing range?

      Yeah, jam every flop you miss, maybe get tricky on A high, K high and check call him.

      You can call AJ and ATo hands that dominate BU opening ranges, AK(and even AQ) works better as a 3bet because it dominates the BU flatting range vs 3bets and can also be played for stacks preflop.
