Hi Guys,

Can I get away from this hand or is it just s cooler? Is shoving pre-flop an option?

Hi DasherF78,

Yes this is a bit of a cooler.

Preflop I don't think you can shove 20BBs is too big. I don't think I like a raise either really we're too short to raise this kind of hand. I would be happy to see a flop for free and hope to hit something like you did.

I definitely like betting the flop like you did. On the turn I think another bet is good. I would make it a little bit smaller. Closer to 750 or 800 since we would still like action with a hand this strong. And with only one card to come we don't need to worry too much about draws.

When they reraise, it's a difficult spot, but I think we are too invested to fold. You could still be beating a top pair or 2 pair hand. Even against a straight you have outs to a full house.

Well played overall

Quad Bracelet Winner
