      ah stupid me... got it myself its a made hand so i should have betted 2/3 of the pot...

      Well since both guys limped i thought ill push them off the pot... would have been happy with the size of the pot it was cause there was a king out there...

      anyways maybe this will be usefull to anyone....

      2/3 pot was more then half your stack, so the shove here was good.


      that being said, i would have check/folded the flop. too much chance of someone having any king, or an ace high flush.

      Hi mafaz,

      on this board I like your push, maybe you generate a little bit more fold equity. Very often when you get called you are drawing to the flush, so fold equity is important.

      Best Regards
