      AJ is the hand of the day i guess :D So, i think that calling preflop is best what we can do against a tight shortie. Although i thought about folding here, i guess if it's not suited then i could do that. No need to test the little guy on this flop i think.

      Gross spot if you decide not to fold and you don't know much about his ranges, so I guess folding keeps you out of trouble.

      The thing is, shortstackers c-bet a whole lot and maybe full pot is his standard size, so considering he could open preflop all pocket pairs and AT/AJ/AK stuff that really don't hit that board so hard, it's not an awful spot to try and playback at him if you choose to. I don't like shortstackers so I usually err on the spewy side quite a lot, I might float if I don't think he's gonna follow through on many turns, or just jam on him to take him off all those hands that can't stand a shove. If you think he's tighter than most with his c-bets, it's probably not a good idea tho :p

      Hope it helps.
