      Another conti-bet query because last time the advice was against the SSS. Surely this time with two over cards it must be right and so c/f. I am playing SSS and my stack was $4.65

      Poker Stars
      No Limit Holdem Ring game
      Blinds: $0.10/$0.25
      9 players
      Converter

      Pre-flop: (9 players) Hero is BB with 8 8
      2 folds, MP1 calls, 4 folds, SB calls, Hero raises to $1.5, MP1 calls, SB folds.

      Flop: 9 Q 2 ($3.25, 2 players)
      Hero checks, MP1 bets $1, Hero folds.
      Uncalled bets: $1 returned to MP1.

      Results:
      Final pot: $3.25

      same thing as it was in the other thread: you are heads up so you contibet no matter what (mostly ;) ). in this case you have to push because your stack is smaller than the pot

      What?

      It says only to push if the pot is twice your stack not smaller than the pot with a trash hand? It was almost the same size as the pot anyway.

      Again it assumes that we have position on the opponent when both times I didn't.

      Surely it cannot be profitable in the long run to bet or push with two overcards. I am sure holding QQ you wouldn't with AK flop!

      push flop.

      completely different situation. The flop most likely missed him, so you push.

      What?

      It says that to only push if the pot is twice as much as your stack, not if it is smaller than the pot.

      stack was 3.15, pot 3.25, if you bet 2/3 pot, you'd be commited, hence you push.

      re-read this article, especially the table under the trash hands.


      Actions of your opponents

      Your opponent did not bet.


      Your action

      You bet about 2/3 of the pot.
      If your stack is smaller than or even pot size, you go all-in instantly.
      If your opponent raises you after you made a bet, you have to fold.

      It is profitable, because of the fold equity you have. And in this example your equity is also fine.
