      Hi,

      I don´t really like betting pot with aces and then fold to shove. If you´re betting imo more than 4/5 pot then you should also go with your hand, since he should have there worse hands than sets, straights or two pair. I may consider b/f 0.34$ against 16/8 or c/rai (consider his bet size)

      best regards,

      Hmm,

      Thanks for the reply.

      I raised pot size to get max protection against draw. Won't $0.34 be a bit less on this board?

      well in the end if you´re going to b/f then it doesn´t really matte that much (you only loose 0.12$ more) and since 4,5,9,T, hearts are all bad card for you then you don´t really need to protect that much your hand to then c/f turn.
