      Your Push is good on the River, cause it looks like your Opponent wanted a cheap Showdown. Sometimes I would consider a Raise on the Turn, you have a very good Draw and against his Minbets often a lot of Fold Equity.

      Hi Kaitz20!

      I think a call on the turn is the right play here. You don't want to fold or invest your whole stack if he raises you. All-in on the river is ok. You want to get the maximum value and the pot is already $3,50. Nice hand!

      Good luck at the tables!

      Thanks for comments.

      Against calling stations all-in should be good move, but his betting showed, that he probably has weak ace, so I should make a smaller re-raise that he might call for the pot odds.
