      Hi there Gerv!!


      How should I act on the flop?
      I decided to re-raise shove here because I think that this guy will not have AA or KK or QQ too often because he just called preflop. I think that mostly he will not hit in here ... J at maximum. TTs may also be possible...

      What would you advice?

      Hey,

      Assuming you have no fold equity, I think he is rarely bluffing here so I actually bet/fold here. People also call KJ/AJ & slowplay QQ+ preflop sometimes.

      Fact is that you just do not have any fold equity which makes your bluffshove really bad

      If you equilate your hand versus TT-QQ,AJ,KJ,QJ,88,T9s, you can see you are not doing very well
