As soon as I hit my tptk I decided I was playing for his stack is this the right way to think against shorties.

Villain is 26/0/0 does villains stats even come into play or is the stack size the only thing that matters here.

Never folding TPTK vs a random short stack fish.

Good thinking! The flop is pretty dry and you're only losing to sets (A6/A5/65 are very unlikely).

His stats make it even more of a snap call because he would easily be playing worse Ax or even 6x like this and try to bully you off the hand.

This is one of the reasons why playing short-stacked is bad - you have very little fold equity.
