It's Saturday Micro $3.30, 25k Gtd with 15mins blind level.

I am confused what he raised me on the turn with, should I shove or fold, coz calling is almost all-in for me.

I don't think he is chasing flush coz I have blocker, but this is just a small reason to not put him on a flush draw. Only hand I can think he can have is

PS: I made mistake in the first place by opening loose from UTG+1 with ATo.

Hi adikumar

With no insight as to how villain plays I would elect to fold. We're super deep and unless villain is a fish I would expect him to have us beat or I would expect him to have a hand that has a lot of equity against ours. Maybe a hand like QJs. There's a lot of hands he can have, sets, draws, Kx hands that he may have floated with.

I would expect him to turn up with sets and Kx hands that he's trying to 'protect' hence the big raise.

Cheers, Chris.
