      i probably would've just gone all in on the flop, with the connected flop.

      Hmm. I felt it was hard to imagine villain could have hit this flop in any substantial way unless he's calling really loose (e.g. hands like 69) and so I didn't want to scare him off with a push if he has hit just a part of the flop.

      Villain is calling a very loose range here imo, his vpip is pretty high and he'll hit this board often (pairs and draws). He'll rarely fold to your reraise on flop imo with his draws, pairs etc, so I'd rather guarantee my equity on the flop rather than risk seeing an ugly turn.

      Hmmm - that's probably good advice. I guess my thinking was: low cards, only semiconnected, rainbow; so felt I didn't need to protect.

      Need to get better at just playing straight down the line...

      Either shove the Flop against a guy who dbets his SD

      or Call & Shove TUrn as you did. Because I do not really know if he has a genuine hand to go with on the Flop, I am inclined to just give him the rope to hang himself...

      I think both ways are okay
