      So I had a similar hand to this looked at and wanted to know if the shove on the turn was incorrect - I wanted to represent the A but the pot was my stack size almost so I shoved, but in hindisgt maybe I could have checked - what do you think?

      Hey AKM,

      I would make a slightly bigger c-bet(0.40$) on the flop so you have less than potsized stack on the turn for easier shove.

      On the turn I shove as well. Another option would be to just give up, but I think there are not many aces in his range and you would give up the best hand too often in that case. And what's more he can still call you with 9x or FDs, so your shove is partially for value as well.

      Best regards,
