Correct play with top pair and the open ender or do you let that one go?

Hi adsthepro777,

This is a wierd spot because it's such a wet board. We definately won't be folding our hand just yet. But it's quite likley others won't either.

Also our top pair might be no good vs 2 pair or better kicker. And even the straight draw might be no good.

That being said since it was a limped pot I think leading here is ok. Vs the short stack we have to go with it. And I like the 3bet to isolate the shorter stack.

Well played over all I think. Bit of a cooler but can't get away vs the short stack regardless.
