      Preflop: Hero is BTN with Q:diamond: A:club:
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.75, SB raises to $2.35, BB folds, Hero calls $1.60

      Flop: ($4.95) 6:club: 5:diamond: 6:diamond: (2 players)
      SB bets $2.84, Hero calls $2.84

      Turn: ($10.63) 5:spade: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks

      River: ($10.63) J:heart: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks

      Results: $10.63 pot ($0.48 rake)
      Final Board: 6:club: 5:diamond: 6:diamond: 5:spade: J:heart:
      Hero mucked Q:diamond: A:club: and lost (-$5.19 net)
      SB showed 7:spade: 7:club: and won $10.15 ($4.96 net)

      Only knew villain was reg.

      What do you think about shoving river? I don't see how villain would call with about anything he has in his range. Imo he has mere mid/small pair Ax about always (or random crap that I beat).

      Hey man,

      well it's really trouble some that we have no clue about 3bet tendencies of our opp ...

      OTF tbh I like minraise quite a lot ... since we have Qd we discount AdQd,KdQd which might be shoving over us sooo often ... It would be much better with Adx but anyway ...

      shoving the river will make your range very polarized I think ... For me it's much better to raise flop ... he will have to fold majority of his range, since he's OOP and we're likely to fire any turn ... :)

      What do you think about this play? ;) let me know! :)

      Hello DeMarcohsp,

      Preflop: Difficult to analyze the play if we don't even know how much the guy is 3betting.

      As played
      Postflop: Not a huge fan of floating, rather just raise it while you also have some backdoors + overcards. Neither doesn't make sense to shove the river, what you representing there? You have invested like $5 into the pot and want to shove $25 to win $10 pot?

      Best Regards.
