      you really don't need to raise that flop, only better hands are calling, and you'll have no problem to be allin by the river. Plus flop is drawless (except gutshots)

      You just won´t call down 1/3 potsize bets.
      Raising is fine, but often you´re against here JJ.
      I´d make it 25$ on the flop to get called by AQ and then shove the turn or call shove myself.

      well the pot will be big enough to go allin by the river with 1/3potsize bets so why not ?

      Basically it shouldn´t matter: if we´re against set then we end up loosing all of our stack to him, if we´re agiast AQ, then we should get his money either way.
      How often have you seen villain bluffing at that board- I have never. So you´ll end up all-in either way- just maybe there comes on ugly turn and river cards where you want to fold your hand on the river.
      Thatś why I like re-raise flop more.

      I would never call that raise w/ Ax here, which are the only hands we can hope to take some value from, so I still think its bad to raise that flop.

      really what ugly card can come ? they are so few of them I am willing to take the risk.
