Hi rudar,

I actually prefer to continuation bet here for value, as we can get called by worse draws quite a bit. As played I don't mind check-raise jamming to put the short stacker all on once he bets the flop and the other deep stack folds. We have fold equity, we have 11 outs twice to draw out on an ace, and we can be in the lead right now some of the time as well.

You have reads now, this was really poor decision making by our shorter stacked friend (not playing a full stack can be a read btw, quite possible not a strong player). Calling a 3b cold with KQo is a pretty big leak, and then stacking the rest off with just a non-nut draw on the flop, this whole play was a pretty big spew by the villain.
