      Ok, I was angry with myself for reraising small here. I now believe that a shove would be better here, as we're so deep, and even if he calls like 5% of the time, I'll make more.

      Harrington says you should shove the nuts on the river, most of the time, as this will show more profit than small-ish valuebets. That probably applies here, but I got greedy, and made a "pair can call" valuebet.
