Hi JokerAce68!

With this being a turbo, I'm going to be looking to shove with a higher number of BB than I would in a longer level game. I start the hand with 15BB and in this type of format, I'll be looing to start to shove in the 18-20BB range. I also can get called much lighter if I shove, as it looks a bit fishier... so due to this, I'm open-shoving.

I could make a standard raise and then shove any flop, but especially if the opps will call pre, I don't want to let them see that they hit a part of the board and this is why open-shoving is a slightly better play. I've made both plays (open shove and raise/shove any flop) and at least in the times that I've done it, I've gotten burnt a high number of times where I let someone see they hit a part, then won't fold.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.
