      no reads on villain except that he's a shortstacked limper and probably bad. Because of this, is it okay to shove the flop?
      And if he were a unknown player, would it be a call and reevaluate on the river?

      Hi MarliesB,

      You could raise to at least 5bb (I always make it 6) as bad players will call you regardless of your bet sizing.

      I think it's a standard stack off vs a 40bb recreational player on this board as he has many worse hands. So I like your shove.

      Hey MarliestB,

      Preflop is fine.

      Vs flop raise, getting the money in here is totally fine vs guy with short-stack.
