      1. Wrong forum
      2. As an highly UNexperienced NL player I can say only - "Ship it, ship it, ship it"
      3. You have basically the nuts. SB donks the flop hoping to take it probably and folds to your raise, so BB is the only one left and he is passive, so after his river check you should go all-in probably.

      hi jafreiteris
      i´m not a NL cashgame player but i guess i still know something about it:
      - raise preflop
      - flop raise is fine but especially after the small bet and the caller i would raise a bit bigger
      - turn bet is good. i like the size (depends on your opponent)
      - easy push river with the second nuts

      Hello,

      Add to full stack.

      Preflop: Raise it here or just fold, I don't like the limp at all.

      As played
      Flop: Raising bigger, ~$0.60.
      Turn: Betting near pot.
      River: Going broke with and you can't raise on river, you can bet out there.

      Best regards,
      Rensu
