      depending on how much of a fish villain is, i dunno how much i like the turn shove... all we can beat here is Tx or FD/SD...

      even tho turn bet is small (which makes it feel like a weak player who has a Q, and doesn't know any other way to get your money in than a small bet), i think i prefer call turn and evaluate river...

      Ok just wanted to tell how I thought :

      Villain called 5X BB so I would assume the best hand villain could is QQ or AQ. It is true that when you think about this hand I don't think I should of push, maybe I got confused by the tiny bet on the turn which made me push without really thinking. I biite like a newbie fish!

      There's basically no hands I could beat exept KK or JJ or Tx as you said. I had the ace of diamond I should of realized that too.

      Urg, that's why I am here to learn.

      It's nl5, villain just looks terribad, him calling a big raise preflop doesn't mean anything except that he has a hand he finds pretty. He'll probably call that with a bunch of Qx hands especially suited, and you'll see him show up with big pairs as well sometimes just because some of them never ever raise.

      On the turn I prefer to look at it his way: there is no way we're folding with about one pot-size bet left against that guy when he could very well be drawing and/or blockbet/call it off with Tx, thus we just need to maximize value against worse hands while accepting that we're sometimes in bad shape. Calling makes very little sense, I like your jam. NH.

      Hope it helps.
