      Hi Ramadas,

      Preflop: I prefer to raise 2.5-3x from CO even with the BTN being short (he is very passive and never 3-bet). With an aggressive short stack we can min raise more in the CO.

      Flop: With the players and one short I don't mind checking the flop.

      Turn/River: Calling is fine since raising won't really get us called by much worse.
