      BB checks, CO bets $0.25, BB folds, CO gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $0.6.


      against shortstack,even if I raise and go CB,they dont fold much,so I just folded.
      should I just go isolation raise?
      I am bad at playing against short stack

      I think checking pre flop is fine unless he's a huge fish like 70% vpip then definitely iso for value. Anything like 40% I check.

      Flop throw a bet just to fold out his random crap and it works pretty often. It's hard to see a showdown usually and if you intend to do so then river you should call for a bluffcatch since you are usually ahead with ace high

      Yes. This is a play I saw Ryan yourdoompoker do and he argued that odds are very good at 1/6 and you can call to hit or bluff.

      Arguments against this are that if bb has a high 3bet or goes to showdown very often and does not fold flop
