      Turn: 7:diamond: ($2.85, 2 players)
      Hero goes all-in $3.02, dryimpact folds

      Was my play here correct?
      There was FD and also some SD and it would be very hard for me to throw this away, so I went AI on turn.
      Should I go PSB on flop as protection or maybe AI directly on flop ?
      What do you think ?

      Hi,

      I like it.

      Flop you must protect with top 2-pair. (You could argue about making the bet slightly bigger but thats minor) Nah don't go AI there, that would be a massive overbet. You would only get a call from better hands. (Thought about making a LOL comment about SPR :D so I did)
      Turn is somewhat ugly, but I'd shove here too.

      T.

      I think betting bigger is a major factor on the Flop since the Turnbet then looks like a 75% shove instead of a slight overbet shove. Assuming villain thinks in binary terms (overbet, half pot bet, 66% potbet, check etc.) this is a major difference for him

      So bet $1.1 and jam the Turn is my line

      Best regards,
      Gerv
