      No info.

      On the turn i decided to raise bigger, to get more value and to set up the stacks for the river, but for some reason, i failed to do that... :facepalm:

      On the river? I thought that shoving for maximum value from overpairs and maybe some Jx is best?

      Hey A,

      Preflop is fine. On the flop, some would consider raising but I think given your opponnet's min3bet preflop, you can't discount QQ+ from his range plus you can't get much value from other hands apart from Jx and draws that he min3bets pre. I personally prefer calling.

      On the turn you should definitely raise and also raise bigger. You can easily make it 11 and it's not an overbet really. The pot is 10.50 with the 2 bet from your opponet and you raise to 11. That allows you to easily shove river while giving him better odds. In this case I don't think he folds KK+ that often because they feel attached to their overpair after betting smal but I do think the bigger turn sizing can make 8x call a small % of the time.
