Marginal Shoves SSS

      I've been wondering about something.

      In many hands, after you raise, your next move will be a shove, no matter what... your opponents might reraise you, they might simply call.. or whatever... you'll either shove after a reraise or as a c-bet.

      What I'm thinking is: hands like AJ, 88, 99 and KQ often look ugly on the flop. When confronted in one of these situations where you will shove on your next move for sure, could it be better to just shove it on your first move?

      according to the standard moves, you are to shove when theres 4 limper, but for marginal hands, i will sometimes shove against even 2/3 limpers, especially if they are somewhat tight just to get a bit more fold equity.

      against really loose opponents with high fold to c-bet, it would be a good idea to just make the standard bet and shove after the flop if you are headsup.
