      Full Tilt No-Limit Hold'em, $0.25 BB (9 handed) Full-Tilt Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.com (Format: FlopTurnRiver)

      Hero ($5.75)
      UTG ($24.55)
      UTG+1 ($26.80)
      MP1 ($34.50)
      MP2 ($20.80)
      MP3 ($6.65)
      CO ($26.55)
      Button ($15.90)
      SB ($21.30)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with J, J.
      1 fold, UTG+1 raises to $0.75, 6 folds, Hero raises to $2.6, UTG+1 calls $1.60.

      Flop: ($5.05) 5, 2, 9 (2 players)
      Hero bets $3.4 (All-In), UTG+1 folds.


      I know that its ok to push flop. But its a safe flop, only a flush draw, and against only one player a flush draw isn´t that scary because its unlike that he is holding 2 hearts. So I tought I could extract more cbeting half pot and pushing turn. Is that ok? I was in doubt about cbeting and giving turn more cheap than pushing.

      No, push, you only bet 2/3 pot anyway.

      Correct, my left stack was really small comparing to potsize.

      I just was greedy to be paid the amount was left lol.

      I do this kind of "active slowplay" from time to time, not often and likely against unknown players, multitablers or if i have a note that my cbet is likely to induce some semi-bluff.

      but this is not the case of course... your stack is almost twice smaller than pot) And board has to be drawless.. Here you need to protect your hand anyway.

      I´m not quite sure what you are talking about? How do you plan to extract more money out of your opponent. You only have $3.40 left in an over $5 pot. So you only have to options, check (and risking to give a freecard, what we don´t want with our marginal made hand) or bet (and then we are all-in).
