      Hi, in this hand was I correct in calling the all-in push on the turn? From the stats, the opponent had a very high WTS value (although not a big sample). My thinking was to try get all in on the Flop, but I decided that would probably scare him off with more worse hands, hence my 3bet.

      On the turn, I pushed his AI because I felt that he would likely have pushed with many worse hands (any lower set / the 2pair he showed down with). Real worry was a 5. But I thought that there was a low probability of that (pocket 5s are possible, but his flop call of my 3bet made them unlikely. Same with 5 + high card as the odds on draw on the flop were horrible for them.

      Thanks!

      Hello rudders93,

      Preflop: With one limper I'd raise $0,10.
      Postflop: You bet on flop is way too small, ~$0,24 would be mine. Otherwise nothing much to do, he may easily even shove with worse sets.

      Best regards.

      Hi thanks for that.

      Definitely agree with preflop. Why the larger raise postflop? I figured anything larger than a 1/2 to 2/3 would scare off the opponent, which is not what I want with the effective nuts?

      Thanks again!

      What do you mean? With the 1/2 pot size bet you are giving perfect odds for him to draw against you. Never-ever slowplay like that, you will in long run only regret.
