Try play shove or fold with 20bb and less. Also if hand is good to call why not shove it pre? This should be fold preflop.

Hi Sapines1001

I would opt to fold preflop mainly because of villains position and his awkward stack to play against post flop. I would however defend with the KJ from time to time versus overly aggressive bad players.

As played I think we ought to be check shoving flop. Reraising to 630 is ok but when we shove we are more likely to have some draws in our hand which might persuade villain to make a loose call. This is an awesome flop for us and because of villains rather awkward/shortish stack we should never be folding the flop.

Cheers, Chris.
