      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      River: ($8.15) J (2 players)
      Hero bets $5.15, MP3 calls $3.83.

      Final Pot: $17.13.


      Villain is typical fish over 18 hands
      45/0/0/0.0
      2.0/-/25/33

      First of all the reasoning behind my shove: I see him call flop and turn with a lot of pocketpairs and draws (even if the board is paired). However I don't want to c/f on the river because of good odds I will get when he decides to shove (24% equity needed to call EV=0). So I decide it's better to move in myself (there is a poker term for this situation, but I forgot).
      I see him call some 7x, Ax, 99, TT

      Second thing about the hand: I bet 2.40 into 3.35 on turn. Leaving 3.83 behind of his stack in a 8.15 pot... Is it better to move in on turn with an overbet? Is there some rule-of-thumb like if the stack-bet ratio is so much, it's better to move in straight away?

      Tnx in advance.
