      Bet more on the flop, like 4-4.25$, after the reraise you have an easy push.

      That's not important.

      And bet more on the flop, it's a multiway pot and a halfpot bet gives them way too good odds if they do have a draw.

      think the standard bet is fine, or push as to balance your betting (playing your monster in the same manner as your slightly weaker cards).

      But the flop is a must-push situation imo, as the required 2/3 pot bet is more than 1/2 remaining stack. The idea here is a value bet as well as a protection bet. Betting half potsize gives your opponents odds to call. On flop you have a very strong hand so why not get your money into middle (objective of SSS imo)

      Hi RockEye,


      Shove Flop because you bet more than >50% if you bet 2/3! Protect your Aces and make them pay for their draws (& sins!)

      Reminds me of Get the most of now, Vodafone :rolleyes:

      Best regards,
      Gerv
