      1 fold, Hero raises to $0.40, 6 folds, Pirate_Fish calls $0.35, 1 fold

      Hero wins $3.46 (net +$1)

      Pirate_Fish lost $0.90

      This one is pretty straight forward, but I wonder, should I bet less on the turn, to squeeze some more $ from oponent?
      I was bit afraid of some flush draws here, so I shoved allin .

      Hi,

      Make the usual 2/3 PSB (0.70-0.80) on the flop since its drawy. Dont bet less when you hit a big hand. You will become readable if you do ;)
      Shove any turn.

      Afraid is a big word, they have 20-25% equity against TP++ most of the time based on 1 street.

      Some fish are overplaying their equity so you get value from that. That's why betting MORE on the FLop and shove any turn is the best play rather than bet 50% Flop,Turn & the River because
      1) You give them solid odds to draw out against you
      2) You want to be all-in asap for max protection

      Best regards,
      Gerv
