Villain is 38/12 and AF of 1.5 over 311 hands and no read. His raise looked super strong I thought a lot of draws would flat here so I think he probably has mainly overcards, sets, some top pair and I guess he could have some draws. I decide to just shove as there are so many ugly turn cards for me.

Hi pockettones,

I think when you say that you decide to shove because there are many ugly cards for you then we know that our decision has to be made OTF. Either fold or shove. I think here against a weak opponent with a limp call means they could have bottom set, all two pair combos, Pair + draws, etc. But I don't think we will see overcards like you said because most TT+ would either raise or limp/raise. A good exercise would be to plug hands on pokerstove and see how our hand fairs and do pot odds calculation and compare number of combos of made flushes against other hands. Even against a made flush we still have outs to improve. But yes I think we can shove here. Just do some range analysis exercise for comfort

Looking forward to see your analysis here
