      I'm never folding to that bet but i hate the shove (assuming 100bb effective, if he's so short that you can't make a smaller raise than it's okay), even 88-99 will bail out and you'll completely isolate yourself again better hands for the sake of protection on a board that isn't so drawy.

      Better options are to make a smaller raise to get him to call again with 88-99, 98, maybe 6x 2x or overcards if he's very loose, or just call his smallish bet and call almost any river unless maybe he pots it, which i doubt he will.

      Hope it helps.
