ETA: I mean, seriously, dgi? No in LLSNL donks this flop with QJ/88 to see if they're good and then folds to our raise?
Okay ok I misspoke. Let's say 80% ish of the time this is a "bet to see where I'm at"
What I meant to say is even if that is the case, the vast majority of Jx hands are not folding to a raise. I'd say 90% of LLSNL PLAYERS in this spot w JT are not folding to a 4x raise here...

This is correct. Optimal.raise here isn't a shove, its a raise that pot commits V so we can shove turn.
I think my.mistake is that I'm purposefully posting more aggressive advice in the 1/2nl threads to try to push the 2+2 1/2nl continuum to the aggressive side since the tendency is usually to be weak-tight passive.
To be fair, a shove here isn't optimal but it is +EV. It's just that I'm so starved for 1/2nl players to be aggressive that I'm overjoyed to finally see.a play withsome balls.
In any event, I think I'm going to retire from.posting on 1/2nl hands. I think I'll do a Farewell to 1/2nl posts soon.
