      (?)Just a tiny question here, Gerv (I assume you're the only one who's doing hand evaluation at MSS?), on the turn like this where I want to bet 3/4 pot and it's more than 1/2 of my stack, it's good to just go all-in straight away, correct?

      (?)But what about times where I'm (like) sure I'm ahead of his range, and have a monster hand, is it better then to still bet only 3/4 of the pot (even if it's more than 1/2 of my stack) in order to keep him in? Ofcourse not the situation here as I only had a top pair with good kicker, just asking when I make trips and higher.

      All the best!

      Your stack is below potsized so shoving is the only play we can make on the Turn otherwise we give away the odds to our opponents ;)

      As pointed out earlier, we do not want to give away the odds to our opponent s since the flushdraw is here. I think if the board did not contained a flushdraw, you can do this with the ubernutty hands like AA because you block a lot of toppairs
