      I had a read that the opponent is a bad player.


      1. I could either call his 3bet and play postflop; OR
      2. I should ship it (due to his stack size) on this flop; OR
      3. I could bet $0.50 on the flop and give up if he calls (because it is likely he has an ace).

      I prefer 3rd option due to my read, but I'm really not sure of my postflop line. Please help!

      Pre flop - seems fine.

      Flop - the bet is fine for value against draws and worse pairs but the sizing is too big and isolates ourselves against the stronger end of his range. I prefer something like 30-40 cents.

      Turn and river - check call is fine because he could bet his worse hands like draws and we are almost all in and would have odds to call against his bluffs.
