      Villain is 37/4, AF:1.6, 51h

      PRE is standard.

      FLOP
      Betting big for protection and value. Most likely he`s calling with Jx, FD`s.

      TURN
      I definitely had to push here. He`s got only about PSB left.

      As played, I think he`s capable of raising with worse: Ad, Kd, pair + FD. I think he would raise the flop with a set.

      Hello,

      Preflop raising is fine.

      On the flop I'd bet around $0.65.

      As played on the flop, I will push on the turn.
      When he raises it's not cool but considering the odds we get, and also if you think he could raise with worse here playing for stacks is the best.

      Best,
      Plamen

      I still like to bet bigger on such flops, because if villain has something, he`s calling anyway.

      I don't mind the bigger bet considering villain and stack sizes.

      I might even throw in an extra BB so I can shove turn as PSB.

      As played I can't see why we are betting 1/2 pot when we have slightly more than a PSB behind. We should just stick it in.
