      Yeah, pretty ugly. Still, I think you have to c-bet and push OOP.

      But how about a push pre-flop as a re-steal? Might avoid such tough spots with your JJ. With such a small stack, your raise is 45% of it anyway. It seems to me to be the best move.

      Yeah - you must be right about pf push with such a small stack. One wants to get value against loose steals here, but I guess JJ is pretty hard to play post flop with any overcards...

      Though I think loose steals will nearly always fold against any re-raise, so that you wouldn't much value there. They'll only call you with stronger hands, and then there will be 12 possible scary cards on the flop for you. :s_o:

      Hey Tim64,

      with so small stack just push preflop even if steal is a minraise, no reason to just commit yourself. Besides you would also push AJ+/88+ here, so, just resteal all hands in the same way.

      As played, you have to push flop.
