Default 5-10 HU - 2 pair but the heat is on

Villain is Im2Fast. Don't think i've ever played him HU but his HU stats are 57/53/2.9. The match has just started and we've both been in line - but I know that he's not the tightest player in the world and is capable of getting WAY out of line.

Eh? You're not contemplating a fold, are you? I'd just shove, probably. Calling down is fine as well. Folding has to be pretty bad given one hand beats us and he appears more than capable of bluffing here or even value stacking himself with KJ.

i think the decision between whether calling or shoving is better is pretty tough.

i think i usually call / call.

but looking at the stack sizes, i think it's better just to shove here.

although him raising 40 -&gt; $200 doesn't make me too happy. he has Q10 here, but not enough to fold

i think shoving turn is &gt; calling turn, although i don't mind calling turn and hoping he shoves river. i can't imagine this is ever a fold to be honest. if you're beat here, it's a cooler, and you move on, but never ever fold.

ugh I feel like this is a straight soooooo much....

Hard to get away when that's the only hand you're worried about though.

I think I prefer calling down, I just don't see him calling a shove with anything worse, given your dynamic, and at most he has a 7 outer with AQ, much more often 4 or less.

Heh. Its amazing how spot on Big Jim's posts are. Although the first few posts indicated this was a "trivally" easy push (I did push, LDO) - on this board I'm not sure if pushing is actually the best play. It lets his bluffs or weak aces or whatever off the hook. Cuz really what worse hands is he gonna call with?

Anyway, I shoved and villain turbo called w/ Q-T.
