      Its not standard without reads and history I don't think. I would often opt for a cbet/fold or a bluff induce on flop.

      Remove results in future please.

      Hi,


      I'd c-bet smaller like 3/5 to begin with.

      As played it depends on the shortstacker really, if you have reasons to believe he can go nuts with worse hands there calling down is fine, especially if you've also seen him play a top pair slower beforehand.


      Hope it helps.
