      Hello, the villain seemed pretty fishy so I called his limp raise preflop even though I was OOP, but maybe with him being shortstacked I should have folded. On the flop I figured a bet/call was a good option with the TP and flush draw and he gave me good odds with his raise. On the turn I wasn't really sure because I'm pretty sure he's calling any bet maybe a check/call is best?

      best option where you can´t make any mistake is shoving flop (ofcourse you can just check or raise/fold pre-flop, but once you have reached that flop then you should not fold on the flop and maybe even on the turn)

      reason: you´re flipping against overpairs and always have some fold equity:
      board: Qd9s5s
      Hand Equity Wins Ties
      QsTs 48.23% 5,730 0
      AA, KK 51.77% 6,150 0

      Also if you include some AK hands in his range then you´re big favorite against his range:
      board: Qd9s5s
      Hand Equity Wins Ties
      QsTs 48.23% 5,730 0
      AA, KK 51.77% 6,150 0

      If you lead then I would prefer shove the same reasons I mentioned before, you always see turn and river and might be ahead or flipping against his min-raise range

      as played: I would still get all-in, although you can also consider c/c turn, c/f river if you have certain read he has there AA/KK

      best regards,
