      Hey KriZO,

      First of all, according to the SSS SHC AQ is only playable from MP and LP so you should be folding here.

      As played, you should be cbetting the flop as you are against one player.

      I dont really like the oversized bet on the flop with effectively A high as if villian is holding an 8 then he has you beat as well and the river card completed a flush draw too. I would have just c/f.

      Regards,
      -Steve

      Hero doesn't have A-high, he plays the board.
      I really don't undrestand your line here.
      You should bet the flop as it is hard for him to hit this rag board. If he plays back (calls or raises), you just check and fold when he bets unless you improve.
      Don't bluff all-in when you have nothing. You can win only a little and loose a lot.

      Also you don't play short stacked, so post in the correct forum section next time. :-)

      I kow, but 2 dollars is the minimum i can buy in with at this table therefore it's more than 20 BB.

      You can buy-in for $2 at NL10 table (blinds 0.05/0.10).
      There you can play proper short stack strategy with risking only $2.
      If the minimum buy-in for smaller stakes is 50 bb, you can't play short stack strategy there. Try to read some big stack strategy articles if you prefer to play there.
      Good luck with anything you choose! ;-)

      NL10 is minimum on site except FTP where you can play SSS on Nl5

      As played, raise preflop is ok but c-bet on the Flop is mandatory

      Best regards,
      Gerv
