      Raise bigger flop (like $0.24). Shove the turn regardless the card vs such short stacked.

      Raise bigger on the flop like posters above me said.

      When he reraises, you have to go allin because you're paying too much to see just one card which can miss your draw and you will still have to call his bet on the turn because you have the right odds. So, if you will have to pay each street and eventually end up all-in it's better to just reraise him allin on the flop because you have the right odds against any hand he might have

      Hey helmyouth,

      I like your flop c/r, but I would make it bigger like 0.20$ and after villain 3-bets you just go all-in. You have a monsterdraw and with that you should be happy putting all your money in on the flop due to 50+% equity.

      And congratulations on straight flush! :f_grin:

      Best regards,
