      Raise vs DB SRP of 12

      1)When does raising my turn double barrel with a FD here make sense? If I am a crazy monkey that always barrels high cards then it could be possible with an expected good FE.

      2) I am confident that 95%+ of my opponents would not continue to bluff shove this river. After all it would mean that they would raise turn with sd/air and bluff shove the river. I would either expect him to shove his fd's if he has them and bet/check behind with this other strong hands (sets).

      This is BvB, you are at the top of your range. You can never fold here. We only lose to 7 combos of sets, and maybe a few flushes. He could still have some bluffs. Of course at micros I agree that they all bluff much less frequently but I still don't think you can fold.

      You also beat T8.
