      Should fold because of the opponent being a shortstacker too?

      I dont think being a shortstacker means that much in this limits, I've seen ppl enter with $5 or more, lose some hands and start playing aggresively with $2 or less.. you see them as shortstackers, but they are no tight players at all!.

      In this case, I'd consider folding more for his stats than for his stack, VP$IP of 8 is kinda low, but anyway I don't use stats in this limits, I think it was well played.

      IMO fold here would be good. He is very tight and his re-raising range may be somewhat like JJ+, AK. In the best case for you - JJ, you are 43-57 underdog, which would be +EV, but all other hands have rather a lot more -EV.

      That's how I see it, please correct me, if I'm wrong, still trying to get to know all this stuff so don't take my post as something proved, just as I understand it. :) So please, correct me (in case I'm wrong :) ).
