      Hey RiverDiver,

      Shocking the amount of short-stacks at ipoker speed, huh?

      I don't mind a flat preflop because it sets up an ideal SPR given that CO has 40bb. Nothing theoretically wrong with 3betting. The main issue is that by c-betting any flop you cross what is known as the commitment threshold (1/3rd of stack), and you should not really fold from that point onwards.

      I would either check/fold flop, or I would check/call with the intention of never folding. (The advantage of checking over betting is that you keep villains range wider when you have a decent bluff-catcher).
