      Ok I feel I prob messed up in so many ways in this hand, including the shove at the end. Please review and let me know your thoughts.

      NL10
      .05/.1
      6 Max Table
      Global Poker (NO HUDs)

      Starting Player Stacks

      MP - 22.8 BB
      CO - 105.4 BB
      BU - 113.8 BB
      SB - 30.8 BB
      BB (HERO) - 94.3 BB

      HERO Dealt: :Ad: :Jd:

      UTG - Call 1 BB
      MP - FOLD
      CO - Call 1 BB
      BU - FOLD
      SB - Call .5 BB
      BB (HERO) - Raise 3 BB
      UTG - Call 2 BB
      CO - Call 2 BB
      SB - Call 2 BB

      TOTAL POT - 12 BB

      FLOP
      :Kd: :As: :5d:

      SB - Check
      BB (HERO) - Check
      UTG - Bet 1 BB
      CO - Bet 15 BB
      SB - Fold
      BB (HERO) - Call 15 BB
      UTG - Fold

      TOTAL POT: 43 BB

      TURN
      :Kd: :As: :5d: :2c:

      BB (HERO) - Check
      CO - Bet 43 BB
      BB (HERO) - Raise ALL IN - 77.3 BB
      CO - Calls 34.3 BB

      TOTAL POT: 197.6 BB

      CO Shows :Ah: :5h:

      RIVER: :Kd: :As: :5d: :2c: :Tc:

      CO wins with 2 Pair, A5

      Was the shove the wrong play or the right play? What would you have done differently on this hand.

      Thanks

      You should isolate much bigger preflop, like 7-8 BB.

      On the flop I would bet myself like 2/3 with TPGK and nut flush draw.

      As played, i would call the flop and surrender the turn, as we do not have the odds to call our draw and our top pair is almost never good in this spot.

      Cheers !

      Isolate a bit bigger.
      Bet the flop yourself.

      As played that flop I would call but OTT we probably don't get the odds. And shoving doesn't make much sense because villain is pretty much committed. His line looks very strong and he has only 35bb left. I don't think he will be folding much so no reason to shove when you can't shove as value only.

      Squeezing bigger was obligatory

      First : not sure if auto-topoff is possible on Global Poker, but if so, play with a full 100BB stack.

      As many have said: Isolate a lot bigger, like 5 or 6 BB

      As you are the preflop aggressor, and the flop is great for you, I would certainly make a cbet, smtg like 65-80% pot.

      You could check the flop, if you make it a check-raise. I still prefer to bet myself thou.

      OTT you are not even close of getting the odds needed to draw and your kicker is too low for a call, so I would fold.
