      Hello :)

      Was wondering if i played this right. The only problem I could see running into was against a higher set, but either way I was going to stack if I could.

      But was just wondering if you would have just called the turn bet and hope for more betting on the river, seeing as there aren't many hands which would beat you if you're still ahead on the turn, since the board was pretty dry. way ahead/way behind

      Thanks dude

      I would need 3 conditions to call on turn:
      1) We have to be HU
      2) His bet should be higher, like $0.60, so I can have easyer shove on river
      3) I have to know he's beting just made hands, and not draws.
      Since none of those conditions are met, I'm just shoving as you did :f_p:

      Nice hand!

      since there are straight+flushdraws I think I like raising more on the turn than just flatting, since it may cost you your whole stack
      But also I wouldn´t shove. i think 1$ raise is enough to protect your hand and get value from worse hands

      Since pot raise would be over $2.00 wouldn't $1.00 raise be too small?

      I guess I am making it like $1,50 although $1 ain't that small either. Should be fine. And of course shipping there directly should be that big mistake either but I guess they will just have hard time calling with a lot worse either a draw or if a weaker pair. Likely have to hope them having the Kx.
