      I think you should decide on the flop if you want to b/c and then shove turn if blank comes or b/f flop directly.
      SInce I think players would very often make moves on Axx boards then I like b/f, instead opf taking other lines

      sry, wanted to say: since I think players would very rarely make moves on Axx boards then I like b/f, instead of taking other lines

      1. What would motivate u to b/c and then shove blank turn? What do high AF players raise flop with here? (I called because of his AF but turn completes flush. I don't believe he has flush tho.)
      2. what inclines you to b/f?

      What I'm trying to ask is how do you decide what line to use.

      What about a minraise on turn? :D

      give him the chance to fold some hands that beat us + free showdown on river.

      on the flop you should decide if he has there set or draw. If player has high AF, then I think he can c/r flops with draw, rather than c/c, because of his fold equity. So I don´t see much value 3-betting/getting it all-in against that players, rather I´ll wait safe turn card and then shove if he bets on the turn. Of course he sometimes has there set and I´m dead, but also a lot of times he is semibluffing and m taking down big pot or he is pot committed and have to call with his draw having 18% equity.

      I b/f when I think players would rarely c/r there as a draw and af is one option to look at, although a lot of times it depends on the game flow and current opponent. If I think that he might make there some kind of move I´d take b/c, shove turn line. If not, then I´m b/f flop, since I´m too often behind and don´t have outs to call.

      Hope it helped a littlebit:)

      Your helping a lot, Im playing winning NL50 after a year! Ill send you some money when/if I make my first million =P

      Sorry to make this analysis so long but:

      If I think hes on a draw, shouldnt I reraise to make him pay? In this case diamond drops and Im in a bad spot, his small bet looks like he wants a call.
      I don't think hes going to make a move on a full stack after 81(less at time of hand) hands, specially oop.
      btw, I am prob trying to go all in if turn is drawy(not diamond), and maybe pot control if total blank.

      If you think that he can shove with worse hands, then re-raising is fine, other cases I don´t see much value there, since he´d fold all the worse hands and only shove with better ones.
      Diamond only comes 19% at times, so you don´t have to worry too much about that and if you put him on draw or set at the first place, then you can fold safely your hand knowing that you´re beat.
      Both call and shove on the turn are fine, but even on blank river you probably have to fold. So I rather like shoving on the turn, knowing that I´m likely ahead, protecting my hand against flushdraw and he might call with worse hands like monster draws.
