      Okay so tonight I hit some run good!

      Is it okay to call for set value in CO SH?? looking back this is probably wrong as villain is so short stacked??
      I decide to just call on flop as there are no draws out??
      When villain bets the turn I am thinking that setting him all in is the best option here??

      I think we can definitely call here preflop. We don't only play for set value in this spot so I think calling is fine.

      On the flop calling is fine.

      When he bets so big on the turn I will have a hard time choosing whether to shove or just call.
      I think both options are acceptable since board is rather dry and there are almost no bad river cards.
