      Hey gAsheks,

      Generally speaking would just flat turn here.

      If a opponent has a weak holding no guarantee a raise will get paid off on flush-turn, and if he holds a flush raising is bad for obvious reasons.

      Might be ok to raise/fold if you didn't have the A, but it kinda sucks if you get shoved on holding the A, plus that is an additional worse hand opponent may call a raise with if you didn't hold it yourself.

      Hi gAsheks,

      FLOP
      Since villain looks like a recreational player I would bet $2.4+ OTF (the actual sizing needs to be such so that you would have less than PSB left on the turn) to prepare for a turn shove.

      TURN
      As played, just shove it - he doesn't have many flush combos as you have A and he can have plenty of Qx or PPs. This is a clear value shove vs a recreational player.

      I shoved - he folded. I was considering flatting as weazel mentioned, but there are plenty of cards which kills action if i call :(
