      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.
