      Hello Gary,

      Preflop raising is fine.

      Why do you cbet on this flop?
      I really don't like since his calling range hits quite well this board and if we get called there are almost no turn cards that we are going to like. So I'd just check behind here and try to get to SD as cheap as possible.

      As played on the flop, I prefer shoving the turn. We just have a little over pot size bet and I want to put all of the money in now.

      Best,
      Plamen

      Hey kymupa,

      I'm not sure why I bet this board. I guess it reminded me a little of another hand where pleno suggested that I shouldn't be scared to play for pots.

      Looking at the two hands again though I see why I shouldn't bet here and why I should bet in the other one. The board here is really bad for me and as you say it hits his calling range really well.

      Thanks as always for the detailed evaluation :)

      Keep up the good work!
