      I thought that the SB has 2 overcards, or an overpair, so i pushed the turn. I wonder if it was right or wrong, also wanted to prevent a cheap draw to str8 with A8, A4, SB limping hands. I didnt think that the turn helped him, bad color, and didnt complete str8, like a 3, or 9 would.

      Which hands that you beat will call your huge overbet on the turn? A sane villain for one wouldn't call that bet if he has just watched your play for more than a few orbits.. I would bet 2/3-1/1 pot on the turn and reevaluate again on the river..

      Best regards,

      3/4 of the pot on the Turn is enough. Go All-In on the River then. Otherwise only better hands will call you. If he is holding a weaker hand, he is making a mistake anyway. ;)
