      Position:
      Stack
      BB:
      $28.34

      0.50/1 No-Limit Hold'em (7 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Texas Grabem 1.9 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is SB with A:spade: , A:diamond:
      5 folds, Hero bets to $32.78 (All-In), BB folds.

      Final Pot: $33.78


      I'm wondering if such a play can sometimes prove it's usefullness. If we assume this BB being loose and suspicious a bit we can get a call in like one in five cases in which we have him probably dominated (Ax or lower pairs). This is quite a lot and I suspect it's profitable.

      But I would like to hear your opinion.

      I would make a normal raise here. You only have 17 hands here. If he is agressive enough he will very often re-raise you here, where you can push then.

      I guess you're right.

      It was just spur of the moment after reading 'thinking in terms of expectations' in No Limit Hold'em - Theory and practise ;) . This is not the normal way I play of course...

      it was about playing nuts on the river, as far as I recall) When there are 5 community cards on the board, its getting a bit different.
      He will be calling very tight here, so I don`t think Pcall x whole stack will lead to the highest EV here.
