      pre: Steal should be ok

      Flop: bet is standard? the playability of my hand against later aggression sucks...but I cant fold b/f TP on the flop?! b/c>all? Or maybe cb?

      Turn: c to induce bluffs on river or push to protect? There are not many valuehands that are behind and call...--->c for bluffinduce>raise?

      Hey,

      Preflop is definitely fine and flop should be OK as well, there are not enough value hands in an average NL50 unknown's range there imo to fold IP.

      On the turn you can both call or shove. The difference is made by how you want to construct your ranges imo: would you flat FD IP on flop to ship turn, or a hand like JTdd? Or would you call turn with those again to bluff river? What about sets? Basically, you have to decide how are you going to split your good draws/semi-bluffs and value hands. You need value hands both when you shove turn and when you get to river. If you think your opponent can't give you value when you have top 2 you can just call with this hand and include some sets in your shoving range here, along with some of your draws while other draws you call to the river and have hands like this 89 to 'protect' from folding to often when you miss and he still shoves.
