    Defenetly not shoving preflop. Personally i would like 2.5xbb raise not 3xbb raise, but dosent matter much. At flop its fine to check, but since its so dry folp if you cbet make it smaller side, its so dry flop that betting 200-250 will do same work and gives you info about opponents hands as betting 350. Folding at turn is good, aint beating anything against two villains.

      Hi sapines1001

      If the blinds were 50/100 then you ought to shove preflop but as they are at 25/50 raising is best. Shoving would be a biiiig mistake, you're only going to win 75 chips if your shove gets through and the players calling ranges will be significantly tight because it's such a large shove.

      As played I think that check/folding is best because I think that our c-bets are going to be called too often of the time which will leave us with more or less a pot sized bet left on the turn which we won't feel comfortable shoving.

      C-bet with the intention to give up on the turn is ok especially when your c-bet has been called by 2 players.

      I understand that checking witht he intention to fold to a flop bet may seem weak but there's more too it than that. This hand is awkward because as you say you will be left with 8 big blinds next orbit, for this reason I think it;s best that we try to preserve our chips rather than c-betting away a large percentage of them.

      Cheers, Chris.
