      Unfortunately I don't have hand history right now but I remember this hand as played.

      I'm on BU, unknowns on blinds, I OR KTr to 4bb. BB calls. So we have 9.5bb in the pot.

      Flop goes QJ2r, I cbet 5bb, opponent raises 15bb, I call, so now we have 39.5bb in the pot.

      Turn goes A, opp bets 25bb, what's better, to call or to shove?

      depends how deep you are. Since it is rainbow board I think he is either bluffing or valuebetting smt like AQ or 22, sometimes QJ. If he has less than 25bb behind I would just shove before scare cards would come to him, if he has more than 100bb then I think calling is better to let him barrel his air/and both his value hands. Either way I´m not folding river even if board pairs.

      best regards,

      Sorry, didn't mention effective stacks which were 100bb before the hand, so opp has ~55bb left

      Hello GreenPiece,

      Call of course, especially for being 100bb deep. You are just making a lot worse hands to fold, let him rather Bet the river as well, maybe even starts to bluffs vs you. :)

      Best Regards.
