Hi guys one rare shot at 10NL, in a vacuum so no reads.

We are in the sb with AA facing a co open and flat call by the btn. I didn't want to make my isolation raise size too big and push two players out. The result of that was both called.

Dream flop AKTcch we have top set AAds.

Ok it plays out fine but I tweeted a note to myself (to get a boom link):

"Smallish 3b isolation raise no 4b or flop raise note here"

Pause replay on my shove 9 turn for hand reading?

I couldn't range my opponent so just shove and hope no JTcc?

- size for squeeze indeed was a little small.
- bet sizing need a little bigger on the flop as well so you could easily push on the turn without overbetting if ever turn card is blank as shown.

Hi Forrest,

I agree, squeeze a bit bigger here, and definitely size the turn bigger, I'd go about 2.35, which sets up a much nicer turn shove.

We don't mind if he's got JcTc, he's a decisive underdog with that hand and 1 card to come. If he's got specifically QJ, so be it, we still have 10 outs at least. We are crushing Ax, KQ/KJ/KT, QT, JT, KK, TT, over all our equity vs. his action range should be quite good here.
