      Wasn't sure how to play this at all really.

      Villain is 18/14, 20% 3bet (4/20).

      I think he's holding maybe 88+ here, AT+, KQ, those type of hands?

      So really this flop hits me quite nicely. Should I have just called the turn as most likely I'm ahead of his range? Looking at it I actually have no idea why I shoved... Only hands calling me are sets (which I don't think really hit his 3bet range) and worse Ax hands which he's not going bust over a whole stack on.

      Hey Jim4rdo,

      Preflop + flop play look fine.

      Raising the turn is an option although it's possibly better to raise smaller to make sure you get action from draws. Overall nothing too wrong with the hand though.
