      Preflop: Despite the fact that BTN is a shorter stack I still think that a 3-bet as bluff preflop would work good to collect the dead money (he is most likely isolating very light).

      As played I'm not a huge fan of calling this flop with the short fish left to act.

      First, BTN will cbet as a bluff less often, and second the fish could ship over us (considering his stack). Also we will be OOP, without initiative and only second pair.

      Alternatively I don't mind betting out to try and isolate MP. The bet would be for thin value although we'd have to fold to any action from BTN.
