      Total pot: $11.21 | Rake: $0.55

      he is 28/9 af 1. He open raised and i did 3bet. Flop would be better, so i had to protect my hand from that flush draw. My hand was ahead for his open raise range, only pocket 4 would beat me. He will raise pf his aces, or AK, but nobody know what he thinks. In turn i felt that i have to push, cuz if i make another bet for like 2/3 pot i will be anyway pot commited. If he was flushing that was too big price to call.

      I wrote that, what i was thinking when i played this. How u would play this hand?

      and sorry for my ugly english;)

      it is well played imo. you can sometimes leave something behind, although you are commited anyways. They may think, that it is weaker, than shove. But shove is right here.

      actually any 4 beats you (and not pocket 44) but it's very unlikely he played 4x this way.
      No point in raising 2/3 on the turn cause you are going to be committed any way. shoving is our best move here so nice hand, well played.

      If he flopped quads or FH that's a cooler, don't worry about it, you played well.
