      I make standart open raise because limp/raise is in my opinion so expoloitable here

      and valuebet river 3/4 of pot because with shove even the 2nd best flush will fold

      Preflop, that is one kitten that will never meow again, and its all your fault! :s_biggrin:

      Seriously though, if your intent was limp-raise, yuck. As you are a thinking TAG regular such a move screams "hi I have AA*! *disclaimer - may be KK very rarely" and normally might win you a steal from late position players. Yay for winning 80 cents with our aces.

      Limp-call is something I consider if im on a table that has very high ORL players (35+) in BU and SB though. Limp-call preflop, play as though youve hit a set postflop. Still a dangerous line to take, but at least you are most often not stuck in a limped pot postflop.

      Best to just raise it up.

      As played bet-call flop, check-call turn, bet-broke river. I dont want to bet-broke such a flop especially vs BB as if BB is playing raise-broke here they could easily have a retarded two pair like 59o.

      Im not sure why we maniac-shove the river. Do we want MP3 to think we are trying to buy our way out of a bluff line? If so we should have escalated on the turn first, but we couldnt because we didnt have a strong enough hand. So the move doesnt really make alot of sense to regulars, much less to a 40/0 (0.3) fish who probably barely understands his own hand most the time, but will be scared by the idea of losing $15. The only hand that is paying that shove is probably K :heart: , and the fishy might even fold that here - :f_eek:

      Just make a reasonable value bet somewhere close to pot-sized.
