      PartyGaming - $0.10 NL - Holdem - 8 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

      CO: $2.12
      BTN: $13.15
      SB: $15.50
      BB: $9.75
      Hero (UTG): $10.15
      UTG+1: $2.68
      MP: $10.87
      MP+1: $11.65

      SB posts SB $0.05, BB posts BB $0.10

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero has A:club: K:diamond:

      Hero raises to $0.40, fold, fold, fold, CO calls $0.40, fold, fold, fold

      Flop: ($0.95, 2 players) 3:heart: 9:heart: 7:club:
      Hero checks, CO bets $0.45, fold

      CO wins $0.91

      Somehow I figured that there was no point fighting on the missed flop vs the short.
      1) as played?

      Well yeah, against a shortie, you have 2 options there: shove or fold. Giving up this one is probably the best line, though.

      Against full stack, you could try to bet that flop.

      Hello faronel,

      Both options are considerable here, though I'd prefer more often to do that with some backdoor FD or something similar. If we bet then should shove directly vs his stack as said above.

      Best Regards.
