      Hi. I openraised preflop looser, because I'd been in nitty land. As played, I'm not sure what to do on turn. Worse pockets probably won't call me, so either I get called by 99-JJ or Qx, so should I just give up there? Thanks

      Hello John,

      I think it is more likely he does not have a Queen so I want to turn my 88s into a bluff here by capitalizing on $2.35 so shoving is fine. I think you don't get the same fold equity if you bet smaller so I think a shove is better in this case

      Best regards,
      Gerv
