      Villain 56/28 over 80 hands. Is shoving here ok? If I c-bet and villain calls we are commited. Also I dont expect he has an ace very often and our shove can induce some calls with lower pockets and sometimes 7x. So is shoving a good option here?

      I don't like it unless villain is known to like bluff-catching, as I feel like to most people it's our best chance of scaring away everything we beat. If you don't think villain has Ax often you should usually c-bet something smallish that he can call with bad hands and shove most turns as well once he just calls.

      Frankly I think he can have a whole bunch of Ax hands in that spot, after all an A is always good enough for the fish. And since the board is somewhat dry it's hard for him to have made a random worse pair or draw, like A98 2t would be a lot cooler for us. So overall it might not be warranted to go broke in that spot all the time.

      Hope it helps.
