      Villain is playing with stats 45/11/10, fold to cbet 50% in 40 hands.

      Party Poker No-Limit Hold'em, $0.10 BB (6 handed) - Party-Poker Converter Tool from http://www.flopturnriver.com

      MP ($12.74)
      CO ($3.90)
      BB ($17.36)
      UTG ($12.11)
      Hero (SB) ($10)
      Button ($8.62)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with K, A
      2 folds, CO bets $0.30, 1 fold, Hero raises $0.95, 1 fold, CO calls $0.70

      Flop: ($2.10) 3, Q, 4 (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.10, CO raises to $2.90 (All-In), Hero calls $1.80

      Turn: ($7.90) J (2 players, 1 all-in)

      River: ($7.90) 10 (2 players, 1 all-in)

      Total pot: $7.90

      Results below:

      Hero had K, A (royal flush).
      CO didn't show
      Outcome: Hero won $7.51

      Is cbetting here right here since he is shortstacked and we didn't hit? I guess we can't do anything than calling his shove after cbetting. Right?

      Btw, Royal Flush!!YAY!!

      I don't mind cbetting if we were 100bb deep because we have 2 overs + backdoor draws so we can barrel many turn cards. Like if we had bet Flop and he called, and we get the Jack of clubs, we have a very easy turn barrel.

      However, given that he's short stacked and he can just jam with so many QX hands, I prefer just checking and then calling. He could very easily have a very wide range of broadways and middle cards or AXs type of hands that would miss the Flop and may just take a stab when checked to.

      Basically betting doesn't achieve one of the following
      -Folding out better hands
      -Getting called by worse hands.
