      Hi. My question is about postflop play. I assume BB is a fish after he coldcalled a bet with a shortstack. His range could be broadway heavy, many Ax, suited connectors, pockets. My fold equity shrinks as he probably won't be able to fold 9x or even 88, 77. Is it alright to check/fold all the way? Or better take a different line? Thanks

      Hello,

      Preflop raising is fine.

      On this board I like checking with the intention to check/fold. I think this board hits SB's range pretty well, so I don't think we will have enough fold equity to justify a bet.

      Nice hand.

      Best,
