      Preflop question. Shortstack raised and according to Call20 rule I should fold, but there is big stack in front of me and he calls. Should I still fold because original raiser has less than 20BB or I can count them together?
      On the flop I should probably fold.

      Calling preflop is fine, 77 is plenty strong enough on its own to warrant a call even if their ranges are wide, you stand to be best on lowish flops against people who play mostly overcards and you'll have position.

      If you were somehow heads-up with the shortstack you should jam 77 over his raise or be willing to get it in on semi good flops for your hand if he c-bets a lot.

      Hope it helps.
