Jeff, Now what about jamming? Why are we shutting down this hand when we have 84% equity on the flop??? i could have bet $65 -$75 and still give him good odds to call on the flop but jamming possibly gives up our huge equity. Doing away with the maniac situation of him showing us the winner, don't we want the call here?
Honestly I'm not really following what you're trying to say. I'll just say yes, we want him to call our shove. In general in poker, we don't always need to focus on what we want him to do right now, we want to focus on overall EV, even if that means making a play that doesn't match his hand the majority of the time. That's a concept for a different thread maybe. If that means going against his range, so be it. Even if he has a flush draw 15% of the time, it can be correct to play against that hand, although I'm not necessarily saying that's the case here.
I suggested shoving not only because he might have a hand he'll call with but also because of the nature of the bets/raises vs. pot size. Your preflop raise size wasn't good and then his bet was too small which makes your raise too small, and making a merely larger raise puts you in the situation of awkward stack/pot sizes which leaves no meaningful poker left to be played, so what's the point of it? We started with standard stack sizes for everyone and little by little it turned into a mess of bad SPR and awkward stack sizes. Even going back to preflop, if my 4 choices were fold, call, raise little, or raise big, my last choice would be raise little and all the other 3 would be reasonable IMO depending on your strategy and how the table plays.
