      I read Little Green Book by Phil Gordon, and it messed with my mind when he said that in a paired board (on the flop), usually the first one to bet takes the pot. I lost SO MUCH doing this at NL25 LOL!

      The preflop Raise is close, but since there is a lot of deadmoney in the pot with noone showing strength so far, I think this play is ok.

      On the flop You of course go All-In with toppair here, he really seldomly has the A here and as a Shortstack Toppair really is a Premium Hand already!!
      The Action of our opponent doesn't bother us here.
