      BB: $5.69 (113.8 bb)
      UTG: $5 (100 bb)
      MP: $1 (20 bb)
      CO: $5.05 (101 bb)
      BTN: $17.74 (354.8 bb)
      Hero (SB): $6.91 (138.2 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with 9 9
      UTG folds, MP raises to $0.10, 2 folds, Hero raises to $0.30, BB folds, MP calls $0.20

      Flop: ($0.65) Q K 8 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.32, MP calls $0.32

      Turn: ($1.29) 9 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.64, MP calls $0.38 and is all-in

      River: ($2.05) K (2 players, 1 is all-in)

      How would you proceede against this shorty?
      I assume it's 50/50 preflop... but as he calls me, should I not cbet this flop?
      Can we assume he would minraise/call, I think maybe it would have been better to check it, and reevaluate turn.

      Hello,

      Preflop 3betting is fine.

      On this flop I prefer checking.
      I doubt that worse hands are calling here and neither better are folding.

      On the turn is fine.

      Best,
      Plamen

      id lean towards checking flop oop vs shortie's open/call which will have lots of broadways in his range.

      also by betting, it is very difficult to get value from our hand, and likely fold out all worse hands.
