      Should just shove pre-flop?

      Wasn't exactly set mining, was happy to go broke on any board with no ace, and less than two boradway cards. Hard to say exactly, but I figure his raising range will include hands like AK, AQ, KQ, AJ, A10, KJ as well as pocket pairs which could have me dominated so I'm wary of high boards.

      Known players:
      Position:
      Stack
      Hero:
      $5.46
      BU:
      $1.35

      BU raises to $0.18, SB folds, Hero calls $0.13.

      Flop: ($0.39) 7:diamond: , 6:club: , 2:club: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU bets $0.29, Hero raises to $1.26, BU calls $0.88 (All-In), Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Turn: ($2.73) 9:heart:
      River: ($2.73) Q:spade: (2 players)


      Final Pot: $2.73

      Results follow (highlight to see):

      Hero wins with a pair of eights (8s 8d)

      Hello Philfox1985,

      Well, if you want to go broke against that kind of opponent then rather just get it in right preflop while you can't really Call for set value preflop. He may easily even not paying you postflop with overcards.

      Best Regards.
