      Is it right to push this flop with as much money invested preflop? I put villian on a overpair on this board, is this how to extract as much value as possible? I am actually a favor against a range of TT+ AQs AKo AKs

      56% favor against his entire range in this pot.

      Hello Saren113,

      Preflop: I guess I might even consider folding here sometimes when I see him being more tight guy who doesn't raise with very wide range. But as played I guess I'd just ship it directly preflop since I am anyways going broke with the hand when I decide to 4bet there.
      Postflop: Seems to be fine to be avoided such a play, I guess you can just shove it preflop if you planning to go broke anyways.

      Best regards.
