      Position:
      Stack
      Hero:
      $20.30

      I didn't want to offer cheap turn/river, but I'm thinking I shot myself in the head with this one.

      Your push is OK if you have reads on him that he'll be ready to follow you with OESD and FD type of hands. Against everything else (like AK for example) you're just loosing value ^^

      I'd just rise it up to about $10 and push pretty much any turn. A spade might be scary, but unless you're like 100% sure he's got the FD you're pushing it anyway.

      Of course there are the possibilities of 2 pairs and sets here, and you might want to take a passive line, but tbh I'd never do unless I have a solid reason to believe him.


      Out of topic: And the board isn't really that wet, some QJ straight draws possible, but you hold their Aces; I'd even consider that a fairly dry board and always cbet it even if I have air :D

      when 11/7 c/r you on this board, you´re likely way behind
      I´d call once and fold to big turn bet

      And if Elephant was working on the new Titan format, I would have seen those stats and done that most likely.

      sigh...not an excuse...just a realization that I've become more and more dependant on stats
