      Hi,

      I dont like your preflop play.
      1. Your stack is 18bb
      2. there are like 4 limpers which means:
      3. that as soon as you raise and you get 1 caller you will be ALWAYS committed

      Hence I like shoving preflop more than anything else with TT, people will call you with 30% equity and stuff


      So as played you are in a sucky situation as you have 22c left and he can all kinds of random draws as well. So it is up to you imo as in what you see on the spot. But making things easier means shoving pre
