      you either have to decide if you´re going to play for stacks or not, since he is only half stack
      If you´re really playing a lot of rush, I´d suggest investing to holdem manager that you don´t have to play against unknowns
      I´d likely shove turn, since our hand is very strong, he can c/r there worse hands, like pair+draw or bluffs and we´re barreling turn quite often, so we should protect our turn betting range

      Well I know I need a holdem manager but for that I also need a pc upgrade cause it's too slow and hm will even make things worse.I had almost gathered the money for both when I had a massive downswing,had to go back to NL25 and now I am back to square one... :f_mad:

      yeah, rush can cause massive swings.
      Maybe you should consider playing regular tables where you´re playing against the same regulars or another option would be become quite nitty pre-flop, since you can´t really know against which players you can steal pf and who would 3-bet you a lot with very wide range
