      Hi kesgab,
      On the flop, bet a little less - around 5$ or so, no need to overbet. After BB's turn bet, I would simply shove, since he only has 10$ left.

      Regards,
      Craig

      Hi swissmoumout,

      The reason why i just called on the turn and not push, is that i was thinking and the time went up, so i just clicked call. I knew this meant an allin on river and also knew that a shove would have been better to charge draws.

      But more important, i thought afterwards that i should have folded on the turn. If i shove there, i had given really good implied odds for the flush draw on the flop. And his turn bet looks quite strong for me, i don't see any worse hand donking this big into me, i think normally he wouldn't do it with only a one pair hand.

      Could you explain it a bit why is a shove ok on the turn? Is it his aggressivity (more possible seimbluffs) that makes it better to hold on with this hand?

      Thank you,
      kesgab

      hi
      Sorry I didn't explain, but yes it's due to BB's stats - 4.8AF, although over a small sample, is a lot, and 61/9 vpip/pfr, he's a huge fish and hence likely to overplay Ax or try weird bluffs - I've seen total air betting in those spots
      Against a tighter opponent you could fold the turn though, since it's a very marginal (or sometimes -ev) spot to put in his stack.

      Regards,
      Craig
