$20 NLHE 6-max: KJo vs fishy shortstack
Villian Stats (VPIP/PFR/AF):
I think playing against shortstacks is one of my weaknesses, I always seem to just think 'oh he only has half a stack so stacking off can't be that bad' and end up stacking off too light in situations. Here's an example of a hand vs a fishy shortstack. His stats were only over 10 hands but it looks like he is a fish due to his stack, stats and min open from the CO.

I don't know if 3betting pre is a mistake. I wanna play pots with this guy in position so feel KJo is good enough to do so but don't wanna flat a min open since the blinds will probably get involved. So is a small 3bet to isolate ok?
Postflop I guess flop and turn are pretty standard, not sure on sizing though. When he shoves river I obviously wasn't happy about calling but do you think we are good the 22% of the time we need to be to breakeven?
