      This was an interesting hand.
      1) I was considering a shove preflop, how would you evaluate that?
      2) Shouldn't we just have pushed the turn?

      Hello Avatars91,

      1) I was considering a shove preflop, how would you evaluate that?

      If you want to flip with T high vs his stack then sure why not. :D Doubt that such a guy folds anything.

      2) Shouldn't we just have pushed the turn?

      What would you do on the blank river if he shoves? This gives you the answer for turn. :P

      Best Regards.

      If we think that we have at least some FE is it not a very close decision? I mean, it is definitely marginal but we could end up being on the +EV side, if only just by a little.

      It would be a difficult decision but I think I would call in the end. Thus I guess I should have pushed the turn.
