      Pre-Flop: ($0.09, 9 players) Hero is MP1 A:club: A:spade:
      randrea9 calls $0.06, 1 fold, Hero raises to $0.30, saidmag calls $0.30, 4 folds, Anterak51 calls $0.24, randrea9 calls $0.24

      Anterak51 checks, randrea9 checks, Hero bets $1.16, saidmag calls $1.16, Anterak51 folds, randrea9 folds

      Turn: J:spade: ($3.55, 2 players)
      Hero goes all-in $4.32, saidmag folds

      Final Pot: $7.87

      Hero wins $7.67 (net +$1.89)

      Anterak51 lost $0.30
      randrea9 lost $0.30
      saidmag lost $1.46

      Should I have just 1/2 pot the turn and shove/call shove on river? On the turn, I was think if I just bet 1/2 pot, I would be committed anyways and would have to call even if they hit their draw.

      Yeah normally a 2/3 or 1/2 pot bet, more if you have to protect.

      But shoving the turn is fine I guess, the more cards on the table the weaker your aces are, so might as well get it in early.

      Just don't over shove, e.g. pot is $2 you shove in $6.

      Fine by me either way, the hands you fold out by shoving sometimes won't call another bet anyway unless you give them good odds which you don't want to do. If you really think he'll chase if you make it $2.5 then do it and shove any river. NH.

      Hope it helps.
