      Bu fish`y

      Notice that neither of them had a full stack, i went for the shove here having 12outs vs Kx, and this way putting presure on 99-JJ, and maybe get some weak Kx to fold.

      Do you agree with the push in this spot?

      Hello,

      So when you are raising this hand you must have some plan for postflop or at least you should have targeted someone to play against.
      I'm only raising here preflop if there's a big fish on the blinds or the whole table is really tight.

      What's the reason for checking the flop here?
      I'd cbet myself.
      When we face a bet and a raise I think folding here is the best. Shoving is kind of overplaying since we are never ahead, also if we just call we don't close the action and could be drawing dead already.

      Best,
      Plamen
