      72 hands, 40 VPiP, 20 PFR. donk 5/9 times.

      Is my aggresive approach ok? Should I be afraid of set, or flush?
      Turn push ok? He looks fishy, so I wanted him to make mistake if he has fd.

      Hi mlatasrb,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Flop: If you want to shove the turn why not raise flop bigger?

      The less money he has on the turn the more likely he is to call.

      AS played I don't mind our line although we will have the second best hand some amount of the time (vs AJ, JJ, 22 and some flushes).
