      Hello uni1102,

      I'd make a normal raise and act accordingly, shoving directly in ain't getting any value from a lot worse hands here.

      Best regards.

      maybe I was focusing too much on protecting my hand. I felt my opponent was loose enough/maybe even tilting to justify me shoving.

      thanks
