OK this is probably a bit of a basic question but could still use the feedback of some good players. On ipoker there seems to be a fair number of short stackers that you just can't get away from. They tend to sit at thje $50 tables with $10 and look to shove over the top of a raise with any sort of middle to large pair or sometimes AK/AQ or occasionally two face cards (like Q-J). Beating these players is not exactly hard of course but I have now come across a few situations like the one below.

GAME #1963965055: Texas Hold'em NL $0.25/$0.50 2009-11-19 10:15:25
Table "TURBO" Isangel
Seat 1: Rodder5 ($49.25 in chips)
Seat 3: Estab2009 ($53.50 in chips) DEALER
Seat 5: r11na ($8.75 in chips)
Seat 6: JBCMaster ($50.00 in chips)
Seat 8: ik1routa ($71.40 in chips)
Seat 10: Rallenaldo ($90.51 in chips)
r11na: Post SB $0.25
JBCMaster: Post BB $0.50
*** HOLE CARDS ***
Dealt to Rodder5 [ ]
ik1routa: Fold
Rallenaldo: Fold
Rodder5: Raise (NF) $2.00
Estab2009: Call $2.00
r11na: Raise (NF) $8.75
JBCMaster: Fold
Rodder5: Raise (NF) $49.25
Estab2009: Fold
*** FLOP *** [ ]
*** TURN *** []
*** RIVER *** []
*** SUMMARY ***
Total pot $59.50 Rake $1.00
r11na: Shows [ ]
Rodder5: wins $59.50

Now this is obviously an excellent spot for me and I will happily take it all day but I was wondering if there is any value in flatting the raise to try and draw the other player with a bigger stack into the pot. If I just call the $6.75. He can also then just call meaning I have $40.50 left behind with a pot of $26.75. I then bet out $20 on any flop and he may well shove over the top if he has hit part of the flop. I can probably still beat a large part of his shoving range. If he just calls on the flop, I shove the rest in on the turn whatever.

Is there much logic to this or is it better just to shove preflop in this situation? Thanks for your help as usual.
