      Preflop is a tad to big. For raising limpers (isolating) you can make it 3-4bb+1bb for each limper. As played preflop, I would bet a bit bigger on the flop. You have a very strong hand against him so you can bet 3/4 pot without a problem. Then you have an easier shove on the turn.

      I like your idea of playing just need to work a bit on betsizing (noted!).

      Hello Spungeh,

      Preflop: Why do you raise so big with such a mediocre broadway hand?

      As played
      Postflop: How many worse hands do you see paying you there? You practically making a lot worse PPs to fold with your play. Not that many draws are around anyways that you have to ship directly on turn.

      Best Regards.
