    You could even not to cbet this flop, such a dry board with a lot of draws and better hands than our's.You will see check/raise very often and in spite of very good pot odds he shove's without FE he will be ahead in 95% of the time . I think.
    even opening is marginal for me, because of short stacks behind you .

      I guess calling the shove after betting is good.
      They could be really wide there shoving any pair/flush draw/overcards.
      I have to agree though that preflop is more of a fold.
      Flop is weird, but by not betting we are giving away a free card, making it a tougher turn and river decision.
      Overall I think you played it fine.

        I don't mean to give a free card ,I mean to give up on a flop like this
        and open raise sizing is too big for me, I would raise max to 2.2BB.

          Hi sapines1001

          I think stealing with this hand is fine as there's one reshove stack that we have to fold to which is the big blind.

          I would expect villain to either fold or shove all on preflop as he only has 12 big blinds so when he flats us I immediately assume that he is a weak player that doesn't understand stack control.

          This board is really coordinated so if we do bet the flop I would expect to get called or shoved on a high percentage of the time so what this boils down to is whether or not we can bet call the shove and is it the best option we have, and I think it is. Bet folding would be horrific and I think that checking back hoping to get to a showdown is an ok idea but I don't think that we're going to get to showdown very often and if villain bets the turn we're in a guessing game so I like to bet call villains shove as there are hands we beat and we're getting a sweet price.

          Thanks, Chris.
