      I have only 46 hands from the shortstacked.
      This situations when a shortstacker goes all in puts me always in difficult situations, especially when I have nice hand and shorty sqeezes.
      I called here, need to pay 2.15$ to win 3.10$ so I think it is a good call here. The problem is if I call what the other guy is going to do. Sometimes they call me with AK, JJ+ and go all in, so I dont know what to do.
      Also once he also called, K high board I just check and fold, no reason to bluff because even If the guy folds often I lose against other guy.
      Turn Q, do I need to bet at all? I though if I bet so small I get called by any pairs worse than mine, and he doesnt have K here. And if I get raised I fold. Should I bet bigger?

      I prefer overshoving here. I want to isolate only against the short stack and also I do expect CO to 3bet QQ+, AK so I really don't think he could have a better hand here.

      On the flop checking and trying to get to showdown is fine. There is no reason to bluff here.

      When the Q hits on the turn I'd bet around $2.3. I think we have the best hand here most of the time.
