      Hello matusko,

      Yeah, I would just make a normal bet and shove my moneyz on river, it's hard him to Call there with worse hands but betting smaller you might get called by a smaller PP or a draw.

      Best regards.

      well played, IMO.

      If you bet 2/3 pot and your opponent calls. You will probably be in very difficult situation in river.

      There is much bad cards you don't wan't to see in river. like any :spade: , 3, 6, A

      So I would say it is easier to shove in turn.

      The reason is that only a very loose opponent would Call there with some draw but we want him to make the mistake and Call there if we bet smaller and we also have a lot of outs what could help us. Flushdraw, 2pair type of hands or trips or whatever. I wouldn't be that worried about that.
