      I have a difficulty determining when placing an overbet is a good choice so I just wanted to know if you would agree with this choice of betsizing in this hand.

      Hello Avatars91,

      Why do you want to over-bet here? You have practically the nuts. :) Just make a normal Bet and invite weaker hands come along, you are even making Kx to fold here.

      Best Regards.

      I just thought that by using normal bets it would be harder to go all-in by the river. And their ranges contain many broadways.

      When would you suggest overbetting?

      Why do you think we wouldn't get their stacks? We could still even ship the river as over-bet or whatsoever.

      When I would consider overbetting is when I would definitely be sure that I am getting called. :) For example when I have the nuts FH on river and some draw completes or something similar. It's difficult to say you the exact spot cause it's poker and there can be picked different spots. There should be even videos about overbetting, although I don't know which one they are cause just a member of PS told me about some play which he saw in a video.
