      Hi All,


      Villain 32/22 AF 3.1 over 144 hands.

      Trying to resteal with pocket 10's in BB. Villain calls and I face a tough decision on the flop out of position with a pot almost the size of my remaining stack. I decide to make a continuation bet and as a continuation bet would make me committed I decided to just shove it.

      Correctly played? should I have reraised preflop a bit higher so I had an automatic shove on the flop as the pot would have been bigger than my stack?

      Hey ollehult,

      This hand sucks out of position, so shoving directly is possibly the better idea, you could check/raise flop, but I think shoving directly is the better choice.

      To avoid similar spots just 3-bet a bit higher when you defend the blinds to like 0.65-0.70 so you are left with less than pot size on the flop and it's easier for you to shove. But you probably figured that out yourself already. :)
