      No-Limit Hold'em, $0.25 BB (7 handed) - Hold'em Manager Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.com

      UTG ($17.66)
      MP1 ($20.66)
      MP2 ($25.30)
      CO ($35.74)
      Hero (Button) ($29.06)
      SB ($24.65)
      BB ($15.30)

      Preflop: Hero is Button with Q, Q
      4 folds, CO bets $0.75, Hero raises $2, 1 fold, CO calls $1.25

      Flop: ($4.25) 5, 10, 2 (2 players)
      CO checks, Hero bets $2.60, CO raises $5.20, Hero raises $24.46 (All-In), 1 fold

      Total pot: $14.65

      29/29 24 hands...rather fishy

      ok to shove flop or better to raise small?
      what kind of risk:reward are we looking for when shoving in such situations or when check/shoving?

      I personally like shove, since I think you should protect your hand against draws and you´re also afraid seeing overcards, like K, A that might improve his hand and if he is bluffing not sure he´d put more money in on any turn card.
      With AA/KK I might b/c to let him bluff with worse hands, since then there can´t be so many bad cards, but since pot is close to 50bb deep I think I might also shove to just take it down. If someone is min-raising flop AT I won´t really expect him to fold to shove.
