      Why would you check the flop headsup as the aggressor? With the A there I'd rather bet 1/2 PSB and fold to a reraise.

      Raise more preflop (0.75 + you could add sb/bb for being oop, so 0.8-0.85), this is a great spot to pick up all the dead money preflop and be happy with it. (Even direct all-in is not bad cause you are putting close to half the stack in already.)

      You will be committing yourself, so be ready to get it in if you get 4b.

      If you get called, pot size on the flop would be about $2 and you having $1.2 left, so you can just shove or check/call.

      Anyway thats what I would do, GL!

      Ones who argue for check/calll are quite ambitious that the Fish bets 100% when we check to him which is actually not true. He bets 100% of his Ax which we do not have beat and some % of the time he bluffs with equity (like KQ, we still have 70% equity)


      so I just prefer shoving Flop

      Best regards,
