      Hard to say really - but with only $1.44 left into $6 pot he's often gonna call with worse so I would shove for value.

      Better yet, if he's really loose, just shove the turn.

      Hope it helps.

      Hello Filipstan,

      Preflop: I don't like the limp at all from such a position, rather just raise it up. MP3 is more likely like a late position, therefore you might want to even raise it up here. :)

      As played
      Flop: Since he is Betting that strong into us you may even want to consider raising here, because he will very often have a strong hand here just before of him betting into us near pot size.

      As played if flop was Called
      Turn: Just shove it directly here, doesn't make sense to keep some of your money in your pocket.

      As played if turn was Raised smaller
      River: I'd still shove it in, more often if he has straight his own he will likely shove it here, not Check and watch what you do.

      Best regards.
