      Hello redwarf01,

      I don't really like the shove directly. If you want to raise it at all then just make it normal raise size like $1. Although I guess I'd still just Call it and hope to hit and play it on further streets. Unless I know the opponent better that he is capable of folding his overpairs or something similar.

      Best regards.
