      Hi everyone,

      Against a laggy, tricky player.. A habitual limper and minraiser.. In a previous spot I 3-bet his UTG minraise in BB and he just folds.. This time I 3-bet again but he 4-bet me so I just call him..

      What should I do on the flop? It's the first time he makes such an unusual crappy play? ..

      Any feedback is highly appreciated..

      Why are u playing short-stacked?

      Anyway, with 50bb you should have just pushed pre. Although mini-raise/4b is usually an extremely strong line, as you said the situation might be different due to previous history between you two.

      On the flop with a short stack you get close to 2-1 odds and have to call. Most of the time you see a K with a FD, or TT+ with a FD. Sometimes you saw AK with a FD freeroll. And there are only 3 AA combos out there. So you are ahead against most of his pushing range there I think

      nl 5 buy-in is 5$ I think, so hero should have 100bb
      I would personally shove pf, that I don´t have to worry about any flop adn he can min 4-bet weaker hands than AA/KK
      Postflop: You should call. he is shoving there very often just random flushdraw
