      ok first of all , my raise to .11 , too small maybe .? i used to just hit my pot tab on full tilt and it would go to a decent amount , on stars i use my 3rd tab wich is 70% , just realised maybe its too small . but works fine for 3 bets.!
      Anyways most of all i was a bit curious if i should maybe just call turn here or if a shove was ok , the utg+2 limper , had previousely raised , now he was limping , i kinda thought he had a small pocket pair or a weak ace ,
      he bet smaller on the turn , so im thinking , nah u not hit your set , so i think at most he has weak ace , so i raise him , but then he goes all in , maybe he has hit his set .? but still im prety pot commmited now , plus good chance of hiting my nut flush .! so i call ,!
      I didnt realy understand his all in their , but maybe i shouldnt of raised the turn , maybe i should have called , ! i was kinda thinking though , if i dont hit my flush , and he shows strength still , maybe i got another decision.! consudering i had him on possible set.! . i wouldnt of folded anyways on river i dont think if the flush had not came in , and i had just called the turn.

      I think raising pf 0.11$ is fine. I´d likely make it 0.1$ trying to make also room postflop skills, but making it against loose passive players 0.12 or 0.14$ is also fine, since AQs is way ahead their limping range.
      Postflop I´d played the same way. There is no reason to raise flop. If he is bluffing then you don´t want to scare him away and if he has weaker Ax you can easily get all-in on the river. I´d also raise turn for value, since that looks like blocking bet and at that point you´re pot committed+ you might still easily be ahead.

      Hello LoKKK,

      Play with full stack. :) But you can as well just ship it on the turn while you wont have much behind you anyways.

      Best Regards.
