      Raise more on flop, it doesnt matter if he'll be all in anyway, you want to put more money in while you have the best hand

      Hello redwarf01,

      Not a huge fan of raising the flop actually. The problem is that you ain't gonna get paid from a lot worse hands. I'd rather just Call and reevaluate it on further streets.

      But if you raise then raise it more, if he has the Ax he is going to pay you anyways. Nothing much to do against his stack. He may easily shove even with worse Ax hands.

      Best regards.
