Probably saw your stack size and realised that long term it will likely be a profitable move to get JJ in against a small stack.

Do you open raise 6x with ALL of your raising hands?

After watching you open limp both hands in the other thread (I stopped watching the hands after that BTW,since open limpers tend to be weak players and pretty much get exactly what they asked for,over and over again...)I'm betting it isn't. Be honest,you open x amount with premiums,a different amount with lesser holdings and just plain open limp with some holdings even worse than that. Right?

Well then although it may not have mattered in THIS hand then yes,you do have an obvious and EXPLOITABLE leak in your bet sizing and patterns. And if you're trying to play short-stacked at even 2NL with this leak,given that playing short-stacked entails a lot of all-in pre-flop playing,then there are regs who are going to see this leak and punish you with the knowledge. You really may as well play your cards face up against players who are paying attention.

As to the hand shown,19% happens,about 1 in 5 times. So it's somewhat of a bad beat I guess,but also totally standard. One thing to keep in mind are the stacks here---if I'm up against a button open from a short stack and I have JJ,unless it's someone who I have noted as only playing JJ+ and AK,then I'm perfectly willing to play for the shortie's stack here and will do everything I can to make that happen. If I have you on even as tight as a 5% range I'm basically in a coin flip with my JJ...given the stack sizes many players are going to be more likely to take that flip,especially seeing as at 2NL giving most short stackers as tight as a 5% range in position is giving them way too much credit.

You play short like this and you invite action. IF you're getting it in ahead most of the time then you'll be fine over the long term.

If not...

Bad beats happen every day, if you dwell on them your game will only get worse and you will start seeing betting patterns when in reality there aren't any.

A bad beat to me is losing to a 2% shot or heads up for the Sunday Million AA v KK.

If you get a bad beat think of it as a +EV play on your part because every time you get your chips in ahead you are doing no wrong. Good solid play wins long term.
