      Probably, since it looks like BB would bet that small with just about anything and the fact that BU didn't raise means he likely has a very small piece too. Your hand can't realistically be outdraw either, so betting closer to half pot would probably yield a bigger profit in the long run.

      That being said, for these very reasons i would raise it up on the flop regardless of BB having such a small stack. We don't mind going broke with an OESD against him, and it should give more incentive to BU to just get the hell out of the hand with whatever 8x hand he has.

      Hope it helps.
