      You only have $4.60 left on the river there so I would push. It's still only a 3/4 pot bet. Other than that wp.
      Why the short stack by the way, try to have a full stack at all times.

      I didn't think that he would call his whole stack. You are correct about my stack size.

      I'd bet more on every street.

      $1.00 on the flop.

      $2.20 on the turn.

      And push the $4 left on the river. The pot by then would be too big for him to fold ($7.70).

      As played, I'd also push all-in anyway on the river. The way it was played he's probably not on a draw, If he's called you up to the river with whatever he's got, he's gonna call the river too.

      It's not his whole stack it's your whole stack. And most players that would call a 1/3 pot size value bet will call a 2/3 sized one on NL10. If he calls the all in more then 54% of the times that he will call the $2,50 bet it will be a winning bet and on these limits he will.

      I agree with Faye. You should bet more on the flop and on the turn to be able to put him all-in on the river. As played: even then you should bet all-in because such a small bet looks suspicious.

      Good luck at the tables!
