      ROL was prob 1bb too big, lil mistake on my part but he called anyway
      after he check i thought he might of been on AXs hand going for FD so thought i would throw a cbet his way, and to show a bit of strength from my hand since i was the pf-aggressor..
      then he slapped me in the face with an insta shove so i thought i better hit the road :f_o:

      would you have played this hand any differently?

      Pre-flop: If he l/c a lot, then I like your size. If he l/f a lot then better raise 1xbb less.
      Flop: Just check. The board is super wet so he will not fold enough to make your cbet profitable ;)

      Thanks for the advice. I think I've gotten a bit trigger happy with cbets when im the pf-aggressor/when its checked to me so thanks for pointing that out. Gotta learn to read the board better lol, especially when I just haven't connected with it :f_biggrin:

      Preflop 20ct are enough normally.
      On the Flop a cbet is OK here. The J is in your Range, and you can represent it. But I would bet 40-45ct because of the wet board.
