      Hey Daisuke,

      With less than 20bb effective stacks you are pretty much comitted after you open-raise imo.

      I think flatting and committing on any flop is fine. You stand the greatest chance of making your opponent fold his equity share this way, because I don't see him ever folding anything preflop. Whether you end up betting or check/calling postflop you should be getting the money in somehow.

      committing any flop means I should go broke any flop?

      Yup. Even with overcards + A-high you are likely going to have the equity you need to get all-in on any flop given the size of the stacks.

      In this particular case you may have as many as 10 outs. 6 overcards + 4 gutshot outs. Sometimes your A-high may even be good.
