      UTG2 checks, Hero checks.

      Final Pot: $5.52.

      should i be re-raising the turn or shoving the river? my only reasoning for not folding the turn is his stack size considering on the turn he has a $3 stack and only min-raises my raise when a shove would be more likely if he has hit a straight or a set or maybe two pair. any opinions on a better way to play thnx you.

      Hello BigBetBilly,

      If you are planning to continue against his stack then rather shove it on turn, he still may Call us with any kind of draw, I don't really see any good reason why we should give him a free card and then ship it on river, when he might even just fold with his draw, with he could easily Call on turn.

      Best regards.
