      Preflop: Hero is BB with 8 T
      UTG raises to $0.60, 4 folds, Hero calls $0.40

      Flop: ($1.30) J 9 Q (2 players)
      Hero checks, UTG bets $0.65, Hero raises to $1.62, UTG calls $0.97

      Turn: ($4.54) 3 (2 players)
      Hero bets $3.40, UTG calls $3.40

      River: ($11.34) J (2 players)
      Hero ??????

      Ok, I sometimes (not too often!) like to peel with these kind of hands, especially against a UTG range. You know where you are straight away on the flop and you can stack guys with premium pairs etc.... So I hit the 2nd nuts on the flop and go for the check raise. I should have gone bigger with the raise I know. I continue betting on the turn with the intention of shoving/overshoving the river. My obvious question is, can/should I shove here profitably in spots like these when the board pairs, or is check/call a better line here? I have no reads on villain as this is Speed Poker. Let me know what you think.

      Thanks in advance

      Hello Ghartman,

      Preflop: Well but you didn't even point out against what kind of guy you are and also you are OOP. :P So you can't really play profitable the hand if you don't even have a plan.

      As played
      Postflop: Raise size way too small on the flop, heading towards even $3 instead such a small raise which gives him pretty decent odds. And otherwise on the river I'd most likely just Bet/Fold it something like $6, doubt that there are many missed hands.

      Best Regards.
