I spend most of my table selection trying to find short stacks because they usually are the most profitable to play at this level. Whereas I'm sure a good SS strategy can be hard to combat its not like I'm going to see any of this on Party. The strategy against them is usually pretty simple - flop a hand then value bet and they end up calling off on the turn with a gutshot. This one turned out slightly differently.

Hero (BB): $15.32
Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is BB with 5 : 4 :
3 folds, SB raises to $0.30, Hero calls $0.20
Ok ok - I mean why am I even bothering here? He's only 23BB deep and I'm playing low SCs - I my defence I defend my BB to SB raises a lot and simply forgot to register he was so shallow. Even then low SC are not always on the top of my list to flat with heads up. It's not like he's even done this before since I've been a bit of a 3bet nightmare to the others on here (hey - I caught some hands!) so I have been getting a lot of walks.
Flop: ($0.60) 7 : Q : 6 : (2 players)
SB bets $0.40, Hero raises to $2.02, SB calls $1.62 all in
Standard - obviously we call to hit flops with multidraws so there is no sense in doing anything else is there?
Turn: ($4.64) 3 : (2 players - 1 is all in)
