      There s 24BB open shove and a call. Is it best to just shove here to make it look like a resteal with AK? How should I size it if i'm going to 3bet it small instead?

      0.05/0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (5 handed)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with A:heart: , A:club:
      MP3 raises to $2.39 (All-In), CO folds, BU calls $2.39, SB folds, Hero raises to $10.00, BU folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Flop: ($7.22) J:spade: , T:club: , 4:diamond:
      Turn: ($7.22) 8:diamond:
      River: ($7.22) Q:heart: (2 players)

      Final Pot: $7.22

      Results follow (highlight to see):

      Hero shows a pair of aces (Ah Ac)

      Hero wins with a pair of aces (Ah Ac)

      hi Meemawuk,

      This thread belongs in the hand evaluation forums too so I will move it there now.


      PS regarding the hand-
      shoving is fine i think. it would be really awkward to put more than half your stack in there with a 3 bet, you would have to shove any flop in that case.

      Hello Meemawuk,

      Well, I doubt that your play is totally off here. BU line already is pretty strong by flatting. Wont change much anyways postflop. :) But as well one option would be as well to flat and let BU maybe even to bet. :P But usually he wont bet anyways without having a made hand but which most likely might still be towards even feeling kinda committed.

      For example if I would be first to act vs the shove, I'd flat. :) Rather than shove.

      Best Regards.
