      Hi,


      Rebuy to 100bb.

      I don't like making a big bet in that spot. The truth is it's hard for worse hands to call us on that board. Qx might be scared by a big bet because of the A, we beat a few Ax hands that won't fold but we lose to more of them that will never fold either, draws might fold to a huge bet too. So possibly folding out Qx which we're way ahead of and draws which we completely crush is a really bad result for us.

      I'd just go for $0.75, that looks callable by everything and it commits villains little by little with whatever hand they have. If somehow you're sure villains won't fold draws/Qx no matter how big you make it then just shoving is best followed by the big bet you made, but not everybody works like that.


      Hope it helps.
