      Wondering if I am being too reckless here or the play is fine. In particular on the flop. My thoughts on flop were: min raise is pretty weak, he could well have a draw like 89 or a low pair. I have 2 overcards plus back-door draws I could pick up (and I did nicely), plus with him being so weak I might even be ahead, and I might have fold equity later on.

      Also, is it ok to be committed on turn like that? I think I am check raising even if he bets strong on turn (like he bets pot, I shove)

      Thanks a lot :heart:

      If you think he is bluffing then 3-bet is usually better option on the flop, since that would give you most fold equity against air and you likely would not c/rai turn unless you hit your draw

      Nice shove on the turn- nothing else to do with royal draw, but if you were for example 3-bet to 0.8$ on the flop then you can still shove that turn card and expect to have the same or even more fold equity against Tx hands

      best regards,
