      I'm no coach, but I don't think I'm folding this either.

      This and your KK hand are tough to avoid.

      I don't know that I would shove the flop though.
      If you make a normal CBet, there are a lot more worse hands that can call.

      If you shove, you are still getting called by better hands.

      But in the end, you're going to end up with your stack in the middle in both cases.

      Hi Dark,

      What's the value of overbet shoving versus betting smaller?

      I feel that we could keep him in the pot with a wider range if we bet smaller and then later on we would look at overbet shoving (turn or river).

      Any Ax and 77 would go broke here either way so we need to maximize value versus the rest of his range that doesn't call a shove.
