      Hello,

      I prefer making it $0.5 here preflop and calling a shove.

      Best,

      why did you shove Gary?

      And what do you take from the evaluation to make you know why to 4bet rather than 4bet jam.

      If you don;t understand keep asking the evaluaters until you do ;)

      Hey Patrick,

      I shove here because I believe I can get called here by worse, especially at NL2.

      Well, if we make it 50c instead of shoving, chances are villain is gonna flat here and we get to see a flop and evaluate?

      Not really sure to honest!


      Thanks,
      Gary

      If we go all in he may call wider, probably won't call AQ, but even if he does, ok.

      If we make it 0.50, he is going to call wider and with more hands that we dominate, KQ/KJ etc, also if we make it 0.50 then it allows him to go all in with trash hands if hes bluffing, when we go all in he can't bluff.

      It just feels like, ah im scared to play AK, I'm all in. Don't be scared to play pots, thats what poker is all about.
