      Preflop: Hero is SB with A A
      UTG folds, MP raises to $0.15, 2 folds, Hero raises to $0.60, BB folds, MP calls $0.45

      Flop: ($1.25) 5 J 8 (2 players)

      $9.95 pot ($0.49 rake)
      Final Board: 5 J 8 5 J
      MP showed T Q and lost (-$4.95 net)
      Hero mucked A A and won $9.46 ($4.51 net)

      Villain is unknown.

      PF: I 3-bet 4x because I'm OOP so 1 more bb

      Flop: Protect and extract value against draws. And at the same time shove Turn.

      Turn: A good card for me I suppose. As planned, I shove to protect my hand.

      Question: If club comes, I know I'm holding the A :club: I don't think any worse hands will call now, and only Flushes will call. X/Fold is a little too weak? Bet 1/2 pot/Call shove?

      I usually make it $0.55 here preflop.

      I like betting big on the flop and planning to put the money in on the turn.
      The other option is to bet $0.7 and bet around 1/2 pot on the turn.

      On the turn shoving is fine.
      If a club comes I'm shoving again. I really don't think that only flushes call here.
