      So... was anything wrong with my play?
      At first, I thought it was a bad play even if I got to win the pot.
      I knew that he was pretty loose 75/40, in those corners...

      Thank you in advance

      Hi,

      If he is playing 74/40 which means he is LAG/A, I think calling OOP is by definition pretty marginal. We are playing a shortstack strategy which means we do not have the implieds in a raised pot to hit 1) sets (setmining) 2) a good board (suited connectors) etc.etc.

      As a matter of fact I see now you play 100bb so that means you should post this hand next time to the BSS section.

      For your convenience I will just judge it for you now.
      Preflop: is fine
      On the Flop I prefer check/call Flop&Turn depending how aggressive he is postflop/Turn

      As played the river is a bet/call yes but size it up better to make yourself committed against him

      Usually, I buy in for 1$, I hadn't realized when I had doubled up when I posted this hand up.... :P

      Thanks again for evaluating it, I appreciate it.
