      Hi,
      Still have to play some NL4. **** Titan where it's impossible to find more than 2 good NL10 FR tables, **** Stars and FTP who don't want to link existing accounts to PokerStrategy. Maybe I'll try to play some SH tables on Titan and see if they're any better than FR...
      Anyway, what do you think about this hand? Is the steal-raise preflop ok? Do you like the raise on the turn? It doesn't look like his hand is strong, and he can even fold better aces to my raise

      Thanks!

      Hello! Standard raise preflop and cbet, but I would be more inclined to take the calling line on turn because you have position and can extract more value from worse hands. Reevaluate on river depending on the card (if any flush completes) and his bet size. If you want to reraise the turn, I would reraise to around $1 in position and fold if he shoves.

      Hello,

      Just Call on turn, only a better hand will Call your raise and you don't really want to go broke with such of hand, pot control line is better to take. Also raising preflop is fine.

      Best regards,
      Rensu
