It's probably the 2 Final tables and our Hero sits in the Big Blind with

A player UTG raises and a desperate CO shorty shoves.

Our Hero calls but then faces a UTG shove on a x board and folds.

Does our Hero smell of phobic tilapia?

What would you consider defending here pre-flop and is the post-flop fold good?

I think you have the wrong hand. This shows the T7 again, not TT. Please correct to put in the correct hand.

I'm shipping it preflop. The bet pot-commits me, so the chips are going in the middle. I'm too short to do anything but to shove a hand as strong as TT.

Okay, so I guess we're assuming the LP villain has a wider-range than normal to shove since he's so short and I should have shoved rather than raise to isolate but leaving something like 2/3 of my stack behind which does indicate that a shove would be better.

On the other hand (no pun intended), if I do the same line, is the check on the flop good, or should I have shoved on the flop as I would have done it had I planned a stop-and-go?

Anything but shoving pre is a problem, as calling the bet pot-commits us. Seeing the flop with chips left is a big mistake.

This I already got, no prob.

I was just saying, if I find myself doing that mistake again, then I'm still faced with a decision on the flop... Since mistakes compound, what should I do here in that case?

All right, will do. It could look rather strong with those two Jacks on the board.
