      Villain is like a 19/4 guy I do not have many hands on. Whilst playing this I basically thought only AJ and possibly AQ made sense for him to play this way. He'd normally raise AK preflop even if he IS a 19/4 and I don't see him getting this aggressive with AT.

      That said the SD-Monkey in me then made me decide It made more sense to push as he could try making this move with junk and to post the hand later.... What do you guys think?

      Well, let's just say that an any limit below NL100 it's an insta shove with TPGK. With hands like AQ - where you need to hit - you only get a made hand on the flop like every 1 in 3 hands, so I don't think you can fold it.

      Also, some might interpret your 1/2 cbet as weakness and bluff 3bet so I think it's right to call.

      Okay that's possible but I think making this ''laydown'' is pretty results orientated because you do not really have a big sample on him

      Furthermore your cbet size is pretty low because of the board + the position you have. Though you have $17 left,, betting $8 leaves yourself with $9 so what about a Shove when looking at his WTSD?

      As played, I would call here obviously, you already invested 50% of your stack but your thinking process is good. only you are lacking the sample size to back it up (>1k hands )

      Best regards,

      Shove is my normal play in this spot as my normal cbet size commits me so hard, I can't remember why I decided not to overbet in this spot, but by deciding not to overbet I have to make the cbet very small as any larger and I'm far more obviously committed.

      Ta for feedback.
