      What's the better line here. Call flop/shove turn or raise flop? I figured he only had around 4 outs against me and I would get more value out of his TT, JJ AK type hands this way.

      Call flop, raise Turn is better than raising flop directly in my opinion

      But I like call flop, call turn, bet River because you are in position ;) , 8 doesn't really add something into your range unless you peel and spike a 2 outer

      So I would call/call/Raise River

      If villain check -> bet

      Hi,


      I'd also call the turn to get everybody in, especially if someone is drawing dead to a flush already, and shove any river. Nobody is ever folding a good Qx no matter what you do so maximizing value against marginal hands is what you should be focusing on, that usually means giving people rope to hang themselves by drawing on a paired board or barreling air/draws into you.


      Hope it helps.
