      What would you do and why?

      My thoughts were: It is possible that someonelimped AJ or AQ PF, but if he did he'll probably bet either for protection or for value. So by checking and getting nothing but this small-bet and call I figured nobody had anything but draws.

      Drawheavy flop so I either call and evaluate with a marginal holding or seriously muck it.

      Moreover shoving pre for 19bb aint that bad with ATs but you are asking for high variance then :)

      Mucking it doesnt hurt since you only invested 1bb but calling to see a blank on the Turn might want you to get to the showdown to win a SMALL pot.

      I see. I thought by shoving I'd give them bad outs for chasing draws.. But in such a pot, the chances of finding slowplayers or getting more than one call, thus increasing the pot-odds for drawers is too high for me to put so much money in, right?

      I'll be more careful next time ;)
