    Welcome to the RCP forums. As for this hh, you're playing 100bb, have the best of it when you get the chips all in - bravo. What's the question?

    I guess I am trying to understand why he shoved. I am assuming that he shoved because of the implied odds?

    Could question whether leading the flop so big is preferable to a check/raise. Could V fold his bottom to your lead? (TT/AQ/possibly QQ) when he would otherwise c-bet 100%.

    At 100bb I would say his shove is fairly standard. Calling flop would leave him with a PSB behind and likely facing another big bet. Not a good place to be when the turn bricks. On the flip side, if his flush comes in on turn, you may shut it down. So by shoving flop V is indifferent to your call or fold.

    KJO - there are no implied odds to consider, since V's shove leaves no more chips behind to capture. it's likely he wanted a fold because his hand was only A-high and he over-estimated the eq% of his nfd. a check/raise is also likely to fold out many worse hands, and no better hands (3 combos of KK). you want the value, not the folds, so b/r > x/r. also, i suggest always adding some question(s) to your hh posts.

    PK - i think leading the flop is preferable, since you're betting for value, it's mistake-inducing to the V, and some V will spew, as is the case here ... an exploit. i disagree V shoving a nfd in-position on the flop with spr > 4 at that time is a standard play. if it is, i want to be playing there. lol

    @derdonker ... Great points. I too would likely see the lead as more TP+FD/ 2p / QcTc and lead me to believing I wasn't as far behind.

    What does b/r > x/r mean. Sorry if this is a dumb questions but this my first post in a poker forum lol.

    just -- i believe the line for that street of bet/raise (if raised back) is better than check/raise. sorry for my shorthand.
