    Hi Rolo,

    I think you've played pretty well. Definately raising preflop and CBetting. I would probably bet a little smaller closer to 300 (60%), but 400 I guess could look like someone that doesn't want a call and induce a spazz out shove so 400 is still good.

    Turn K, I don't think we should fold here ever. So we can shove as you have or check behind and call any river bet, or bet the river ourselves if we like the river card. The guy looks pretty loose passive so I would say shoving here is probably the best option. He might still call on a flush draw, straight draw or smaller pairs. If he doesn't call a shove now then we wouldn't be getting any more money out of him on the river anyway unless he hits his hand.

    Well played. What did he turn over?

      Hi Andy ty

      I fully understand pre and on the flop and was pretty sure I had played that part good

      Can you go into further detail why the shove was good even though K came onthe turn please?

      As thsi is the part I was unsure about I should have made this clear earlier sorry

      Is it becuase he loose and Im protecting against the flush and draw and possible straight ?

      I was amazed when he turned over A2s (hearts)...I shouldnt have been as I bene losing lot of races QQv AKo and AQs v 99 etc I kepe getting flopped dead as in this case...past 10 games bene liek this so I know im due a very good run (it worked out last tiem for me so i remain posiive and upbeat varuiance will be my friend soon lol)

      Im too results orientated well kind of so it really clouds my judgement whether I did play it ok or indeeed bad

      So why was it good ?

      See I know what happened whereas you dont so you can have a more accurate view(plus your a better player) for me to not be results orientated am i best forgeting what happeend completely(I mean when he called allin on turn) and just think about the part that you got to see ie not his cards?

      My way of thinking was (and this may not be the good way to play) bu tyou say it was ..was price him in pre/try get him out on flop/umm not so sure here on turn as he could have had a K but I was tryign to stop him drawing(how wa s I to know he had flopped the straight lol???) so im really querying why my push was good allin on the turn?

      Thanks oh and wewere nowhere near the bubble just remembered that too

        Hi rolo,

        I think the shove is good not so much for protecting our hand although thats a benefit but more for value because being loose I think he can still call on a flush draw, straight draw or smaller pairs, which we all beat.
