      River: J:spade: ($52.57, 2 players, 1 all-in)

      I got the nutz (assuming he doesnt have 83 or 53) and fortunately villain shoved on my turn bet. My question is more that when I placed the bet i was a bit puzzled on the amount to bet. A shove was an overbet and whatever I could think of betting was leaving too little for the river bet. I am thinking now check/raise but I dont have enough info on villain to think he will bet and I need to protect against a FD. So what bet would you recommend

      Hello thazar,

      Preflop: The question rather actually would be that why you did so small raise? I do basically not really give that much respect vs such min-raises. I'd basically do here at least $3 at least while 2 so-called limpers and being OOP.
      Postflop: Really do like the bet sizing on flop and as well turn. I wouldn't really change much in it and I wouldn't shove either. We are basically forcing to do a mistake anyways if he has a draw and that's mainly our plan and there is no we are folding the hand. :f_biggrin:

      Best regards.
