      Why are you shortstacked at the table?

      4bet bigger preflop to his min3bet, at least to 5,25$.

      Against unknown I'd consider bet/fold flop, we dont know how often he would bluff if we check, and we could have a hard time with this ch/call line.

      As played, I'd ch/fold river, board is really ugly, many combos beat us now.

      Hello daisuke3823,

      Add to full stack if playing BSS.

      Preflop: As pointed out above you should be 4betting bigger vs min-3bets.
      Flop: Most likely go also for a CB cause clearly the guy isn't the best player on the table. He could even pay us with Jx and we can always reevaluate the turn.

      As played
      River: FD also now got there, so not many worse hands pay you nor they Bet the river, can easily go for Check/Fold even and skip the thin value from Jx.

      Best Regards.
