      The bet pf was a isolation bet. On the turn, that check, after a reraise, looked very weak, so I pushed.

      After the hand, I realized that I did not have a big enough hand and should have controlled the pot, because TP decent kicker it's not good enough to risk my entire stack.

      Should have checked on 4th street. And reevaluate on river.

      I think you can b/f flop, since you´re going to fold anyway on turn shove and people wouldn´t play back to you a lot of times
      I would likely also take free card on the turn and fold to river shove
