      Opening ATs in MP2 is probably looser than I need to be, but I dont really want to fold and open limp is too weak. Anyway, as played, Turn card is decent for me to continue on I think since I'm OOP, and I'm probably check-calling here anyway so I'd rather keep the initiative. Vs his stack I'm trying to price myself in. My bet actually looks like its trying to scare away draws I think. What would be a more sensible way to play this? sizing etc?

      Hero bets $0.7, BU calls $0.70.

      Turn: ($2.35) 4:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero bets $2.35, BU folds.

      Final Pot: $4.70

      Hello Meemawuk,

      Preflop: If having such a shorty on BU and he is some what loose then yes, I'd rather prefer to have a bit tighter range. Although it's totally doable.
      Postflop: I'd say we still got fold equity there and also pretty great equity vs any range. Therefore I don't mind the shove at all vs his stack on turn, other option would be just to Check/Fold there. We might even sometimes be ahead of his flop Calling range.

      Best regards.
