      0.05/0.10 No-Limit Hold'em (7 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Texas Grabem 1.9 by

      Preflop: Hero is MP1 with Q:heart: , Q:club:
      Hero raises to $0.40, 4 folds, SB calls $0.35, BB folds.

      Flop: ($0.90) 9:club: , 2:diamond: , 4:club: (2 players)
      SB bets $0.70, Hero raises to $1.30 (All-In), SB calls $0.60.

      Turn: ($3.50) T:heart:
      River: ($3.50) 2:heart:

      Final Pot: $3.50

      More interresting question is what if there were ace on the flop and I hold KK or QQ and I'm first to act. Should I make normal 2/3 bet (going all-in if my bet is 1.5 times bigger than my stack) or should I just play check/fold.

      You hold same cards, pot and stack are also the same.
      Your play is cbet 2/3 pot (0.6$) and fold to reraise. We assume, that our 0.6$ cbet is big enough to force non-Ace hands out of the hand. If opponent re-raise we have to fold, because we are in wa/wb situation. We are ahead if he doesn`t hold an Ace and way behinf if he does. In the last case we have only 2 outs to improve... therefore, we don`t want to risk our whole stack and fold, if we can save substantial part of it.

      According to the basic strategy you have to cbet/fold in this situataion, unless your stack:pot ratio is 1:1 or lower. But on NL 10 you can go all-in with a ratio 1.1 - 1.3 : 1, since players usually will re-raise your normal cbet with any trash.
      So if there are 10BB in the pot and your stack is 10-13BB or lower you can push.
