      Turn brings one of the ugliest possible cards, so I wonder whether to continue with aggression makes sense... ...I thought I was already more or less commited, so I decided to just push. Now that I look I should bet some more on the flop, but I don't think it would change much.

      Personally I would have bet $1.5 on flop to protect because of the FD, but if the board had been rainbow i would have made it $1.25. Still shorties don't normally need to protect so hard which leads me to say your flop bet wasn't actually that bad.

      Ugly Turn But i still push, pot is 1.5 times bigger than our remaining stack.

      Well if you did not show iniative by checking, that would not represent an Ace in your hand would not it ? ;)

      An ugly card but still you are committed to this hand so I go all-in. And the board on the flop is quite flushy so I would bet 3/4 so around $1.6 - $1.75.

      Best regards,
      Gerv
