      Easy push, nice hand!

      Even if he hit his A on the turn you have 11 outs to improve your hand on the river.

      I would only bet flop a little less, 1.75$.

      mmm i think the $2 bet on the flop is right if you dont have much time to type 1.85

      easy push, also because its :spade: ... sure an ace is a bad card but it doesnt appear too often if they call you with Ax on the flop.

      but.... what should you do if that ace was A :heart: for example???

      i think id push anyways....

      Yeah, you're right, when you raise preflop, have made hand on the flop, you push any turn, no matter what the card is. The :spade: is just bonus. :)

      Hi mbml,

      Against a fish I tend to raise 6bb SB to get some extra fold equity but 5bb is most of the times the best raise size.

      PostFlop: Ever thought about shoving it against this fish?
      Your play is fine that's not the issue but against fishes with high VPIP/WTS I tend to just shove it because it looks weaaaaaaaak imo

      But this is a matter of what you like

      Best regards,
      Gerv
