      On the flop I would consider raising for thin value and protection since he bet really small (and gives good odds to SB as well) and both are short (and thus can call me really wide).

      As played I'd bet turn larger for value/protection.

      On the river I'd call since he is short and can still shove worse (missed draws, worse Ax). And our pot odds are roughly 25%.

      1) What do you think about preflop?

      2) I just feel that I1m crushed on the river. Only I feel that? ?(

      What about 3betting preflop to 0.6$. Is that a mistake? Vs such minraises i like to act with 3beting vs such an opponent. I also like to play HU vs player like that.

      1) Preflop: Considering his smaller stack do we 3-bet fold or 3-bet call? I feel that 3-bet calling would be a bit loose and higher variance short term.

      I would 3-bet or fold if the guys behind us would be aggressive and would squeeze a lot.

      2) What range do you give him for betting small on flop, ck/calling turn and shoving river?

      Preflop: true

      2) As played on the river, the SB donks. He did x.c on F,T, and donks river with a decent sized bet. Well,he doesnt want me to check behind. He must be able to beat A-pair to do that.
      But overall yeah, raising flop seems nice.
