      68/35/1.5, f3bet 14, fcbet 46 (13) in 3bet pots, 269h

      I decided that with smaller sizing I get more calls, and he has not good implied odds anyway. Is it ok or should i 3bet to 1.6?

      cbet small also to make it look weak

      Heya,

      You can actually go with 1.00-1.10 as sizing pre if you want since he is so short imo. You steal leverage stacks easily plus it might induce a bit more often since it looks weaker.

      Postflop, you can bet very small given stacks.. I think 1 is more than enough. You want him to spazz A high or overs just because he gets the impression of folding equity.

      by betting one he will almost have odds with FD so thats why I dont do that. If this was dry then I like such small bet more.

      His flushdraw does not have that great odds since you have so many redraws plus his range will contain quite a few more non-flushdraw hands comapred to flushdraws. The times when you turn a FD and he turns a flush and get it in behind is going to be more than outweighed by the times you get it way ahead vs spews and weak hands.
