      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Known players:
      BU = ($8.17)
      SB = ($4.03)
      BB = ($2.51)
      UTG1 = ($2.30)
      UTG2 = ($4.20)
      MP1 (Hero) = ($1.80)
      MP2 = ($1.27)
      MP3 = ($2.00)
      CO = ($7.45)

      Preflop: Hero is MP1 with Q, Q.
      UTG1 folds, UTG2 calls $0.10, Hero raises to $0.50, 6 folds, UTG2 calls $0.40.

      Flop: ($1.15) 7, 3, 7 (2 players)
      UTG2 checks, Hero bets $0.65, UTG2 calls $0.65.

      Turn: ($2.45) 5 (2 players)
      UTG2 checks, Hero bets $0.65(All-In), UTG2 calls $0.65.

      River: ($3.75) 2 (2 players)


      Final Pot: $3.75.


      In general I need to go all-in on the flop, but I belive that I am quite ahead on this flop and with my bet I will make way weaker hands to call here. What do you think?

      Hey DessiP,

      You only have slightly bigger stack than the pot, so I believe most low stake players will call pretty much the same ranges against your push than they would if you made a normal 1/2 to 2/3 potsize bet and shove turn thus I don't see much difference in value.

      If you presume or have a read villain will more likely call smaller bets than a shove then as played is better as you have nothing to protect against on such a dry board.
