      Villain was unknown at the time of the hand but since he was not playing a full stack I would assume that he is a recreational player.

      Preflop: I'm not sure how wide villain is stealing with such a small stack. I decided to call since I had a strong enough hand IP that will be ahead of some parts of villains range. Didn't really see any point in 3b'ing vs such a small stack. I will ISO myself vs better mostly and will have to 3b/fold.

      Flop: Didn't see any point in raising. Only worse hands I see bet/calling are strong FD's and K9/KT. I think the vast majority of his bet/calling or bet/3b range would have me beat here

      BB     46.33%  35.27%  11.06% { KdJd }

      Decided to just call and keep his weaker range in and re-evaluate T.

      Turn: I have to bet here for value and protection IMO and if he x/raises then I think I have to bet call give pot odds and SPR. Plus I think he would go broke with a wider range on the turn for the same reason.

      Hi Muel,

      Preflop: Calling and 3-betting are both options but given his stack I agree that calling is probably better.

      Postflop: Your postflop line is fine. Your turn bet is fine and we can get some ck/calls from Qx, weaker Kx and plenty of draws.
