      Villian is unknown. I don't put him on the 9 when he raises the flop but should I 3-bet, or am I then just isolating myself against better hands, is this hand a case of way ahead/way behind and then ok to call down? Am I just a fish.... :f_eek:

      I think fish can also take that line with 5x, some lower pp-s or bluffs
      Calling down there seems very standard although since he is so short and youré not folding river I think even shoving turn is one option.

      Hi Kaitz20 and thanks for the feedback.

      Villian was on a bluff with overcards, if I shove the turn do I not get him to fold hands that I beat and isolate myself against better hands, where by calling I might get a 3rd bet from worse hands?

      River could bring ugly cards, but if you think you´d happy to call if A, K; Q; J comes, then call is ok
      Just if he has put all-in half his stack it is hard him to fold your tunr shove evn with overcards
