      Hey, thought this might be interesting for you. Before the flop i raised as usual with AQ OOP, got a 3bet. Thought i can handle a 3bet pot against this player and called, coz he seems kinda weak imo. On the flop, hit TpTk. Normally, i would have just bet for value 2/3 pot. But, decided to try something new and shoved right away. Thought this could be tricky for villain and he could call a lot worse hands here. It may seem to him that this is a bluff-push. So, what do you think about this kinda play?

      Hello LuckyDimes,

      Preflop: Pretty horrible call against his stack, either get it in or just fold it.

      As played
      Postflop: I don't like the shove either, just scaring away a lot worse hands. Rather make a normal bet and shove it on turn.

      Best regards.
