      I don't think calling can make us much good, because the money will go in anyway.

      But if i shove i almost never get called by worst, mostly by 6x... that's pretty much his range after flop play, i guess he would have went broke with two pair or overpair on flop if he was aggressive.

      What do you think?

      Preflop raising is fine.

      On the flop I like raising but I think you made it a little bit big - I'd make it around $1.6 here.

      As played, I think we can call here on the turn. We have position plus ten outs and I doubt that he'd slow down if the board pairs, so I think we have a lot of implied odds here.
