Hi Guys,

Did I play this OK? I'm maybe a little deep to shove but didn't want to call and fold the flop. I thought I had some fold equity against the caller.

Thanks

Hey DasherF78

Your shove is fine and I think it would be a mistake to play it any other way.
Although we have a lot of chips (37 bb's) we have to take into account the size of the pot and in this case there are 5500 which is a big % of our stack!

The pot to stack size ratio warrants a shove, if we were to 3bet to say 5k and get called we would have less than a pot sized bet left on the flop which can create some awkward situations.

Nice hand, Chris.

Thanks Chris

What do you think of the villain's call with the 99? I'd be feeling pretty sick in his shoes and would at least be looking for my fold button
