      No real stats on villian.

      He took his time calling in the SB, so I presumed his range would be pp's, maybe AJ/AQ, possibly AK.

      I think flop raise is ok?

      Narrows his range when he calls, to AJ, QJ, JK JJ, 77, 22.

      Check on the turn with only 2.30 left I think shows weakness, so I just check back to see river.

      After river check back I don't expect him to have hit a flush, or have 2 pair since the river is a blank.

      Is my shove here ok? I basically put him on AJ, and so decided he would have a hard time getting away from it for the pot odds.

      Hello Jim4rdo,

      He may still even have FDs in his range and a lot of hands will Call on turn, that's the reason why I would just consider shipping right there and protect from FD.

      But as played I do agree that if he really had the flush then he would be inclined to shove himself, therefore you can even consider shipping it as you did play this way.

      Best regards.
