      I'd say, you are. Plus, You forgot the fact, that will all the the money already in the pot, you only need 40% of equity this call to be profitable, and even with your range, you have 43%.

      So, it is a "must be" call.

      I think if you are raising for value then you need to call his shove, your plan was to get to stacks in right?

      I think i would have played it more cautious, Especially when Sb donks into us for almost pot size, looks like a set scared of the flush draw :D

      Hello 13BlackCats,

      No need to raise in first place here on such a board, I'd rather take pot control and play way ahead/behind here than raise it for value/protection. You rarely going to be ahead if an opponent picks such a line. But now again, why do you raise?

      Best Regards.
