      I would c/f in this case to save myself $0.48.

      Against a average stack or big stack I will fire off a continuation bluff bet and in most cases I will pick up the pot.

      But a short stack isn't scared to call you, so most of the time he will call with anything, and that anything might just be better than your hand.

      Preflop is fine. Postflop you'd need to have seen that this guy is capable of folding something, since limp/calling shortstacks are generally very bad and will cling even to A-high in those situations. With a decent Ax i'd play it like you did, since you'd beat more of the hands he might still call with.

      Hope it helps.
