      I have shoved in similar situations in the past and had success so far as I can remember.

      Villain was calling with 50% of his hands and raising the cbet 50% of the time. Was that standard or should I go for a 4bet? I often get called in spots like this.

      In spots like this, if I plan to go with the hand (and I would at 5nl), I would like to 3-bet smaller on the flop.

      With your shove you take away the chance for him to bluff.

      If we make it like $2.20-$2.40 he can still bluff over you.
