The PS c-bet on the flop is scary, but I've seen players do this with air on these kind of boards.(especialyl on 2NL). Calling the large turn c-bet was stupid as I can see now lol, he certainly had a hand (I though some hand with the K or J of spades like TJ KJ or QK, KK, JJ). The 1BB DB on teh river looked like a blocking bet to me, and I shoved since the Js or Ks could call my shove.
Any thoughts ?
BTW, he had 5s7s. Who would've guessed ?! lol.

Hi fp,

My preferred line is to 3b preflop here, although I will sometimes flat I do so when I have specific reasons, without reads those reasons aren't present.

Flop call is fine. Raising isn't bad here either, as we have good hand equity vs. his range and he might even fold other AK's or TT type hands, or get it in with us freerolling vs AxKs which is awesome.

Turn call I don't really like, with 1 card to come and bad implied odds we really aren't getting the price to call, and his line looks strong, so semi-bluffing isn't attractive any more as he won't fold any strong hand on a blank turn.

River shove is perfect here imo.
