      0.01/0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (10 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.90 by

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with K:heart: , K:spade:
      UTG calls $0.02, 3 folds, MP2 raises to $0.09, Hero raises to $0.27, CO folds, BU calls $0.27, 3 folds, MP2 calls $0.18.

      Flop: ($0.86) J:heart: , 9:diamond: , 3:heart: (3 players)
      MP2 checks, Hero bets $0.6, BU calls $0.60, MP2 folds.

      Turn: ($2.06) T:club: (2 players)
      Hero raises $3.19 (All-In), BU folds.

      Final Pot: $5.25

      --- I know my shove on the turn was a very strange move here, but as you can see, BU was extremely loose, 93 VPIP (okay only 28 hands but even so that's huge), and so I figured he might call here with top pair, or even a flush draw or straight draw. Was this an okay move or would I have been better just betting $1 to $2?

      Hi Royaltramp!

      Flop: Make the bet bigger, flop is pretty coordinated, you can go for $0.7-0.8 here.

      Turn: You are OOP, that sucks. On the other hand, AF 0.6 is way off and most likely we can give credit BU for his action. He wan't semibluf raise us. By betting so big here we can get call only from str8/set/2pair.

      Any hands we can value bet here like TQ, JQ, JK, J7, T7, 97, 98 will fold here.

      So with bet like $1-$1.2 we can get call from these hands. We may have safe fold on river 8, sometimes 7 (we do not wan to see these cards as they will complete str8/2 pairs. Q completes our str8 and we might get call from idiots end str8 for only $1 behind.
