      PKR, $0.10/$0.25 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players

      Hero (BTN): $31.88 (127.5 bb)
      SB: $41.62 (166.5 bb)
      BB: $36.34 (145.4 bb)
      UTG: $47.07 (188.3 bb)
      MP: $8.30 (33.2 bb)
      CO: $25.20 (100.8 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with 8 7
      UTG raises to $0.75, MP calls $0.75, CO calls $0.75, Hero calls $0.75, 2 folds

      Flop: ($3.35) Q 8 8 (4 players)
      UTG bets $2.51, MP calls $2.51, CO folds, Hero calls $2.51

      Turn: ($10.88) 6 (3 players)
      UTG bets $5.10, MP calls $5.04 and is all-in, Hero raises to $28.62, UTG folds

      River: ($26.12) 5 (2 players, 1 is all-in)


      Is there value in shoving the turn. With this turn card there are now more straight draws and a flush draw. If I shove here he migh even fold Qx,KK,AA since my line looks strong. Villain hasn't shown to stack off lightly. Would it be better to just flat the turn and bet the river if checked to?

      Hi Jozata,

      Preflop: I think calling here is too light. Our hand doesn't really flop that well and MP, the only apparent fish is very short.

      Flop: As played I'd also call to keep UTG in (the fish is short and will most likely go broke).

      Turn: Our turn shove looks very strong here. We can't expect villain to put us on anything but a 8x+ here, especially since MP is already all in.

      So considering how dry the board is I'd continue calling and villain can easily valuebet Qx+ on the river still and if he checks we can still valuebet.

      with reaise you just izolate yourself into better 8x and he can probably fold Qx as you say cause our line here in 3way looks very strong
