      Hi all,

      Had this hand playing NL 25 SSS my stack was $4.65

      Just wondering if this is a check/fold or push. Wasn't sure against 2 opponents but the pot on the flop was $4.10 and I had $3.40 left so I pushed. Haven't faced this hand for a while so made a post

      in HU, but he is up gainst 2 opponents. quite doubtfull, I think I prefer check/fold here. Although, I guess I could push it if I were last to act.

      according to the basic strategy, you push no matter what when your stack is twice smaller then the pot.

      Oh, my first post before I edited said definitely check fold cause the button hasnt acted and 8s arent a made hand vs 2 ppl etc, I thought it was if the pot x1.5 is bigger than ur stack u go all in? Or is that if u have to raise you go all in?

      you have to push when you have only one opponent, because you need to cbet in this case. Against 2 opponents you don`t have to cbet, your chances to win is obviously smaller and you FE is aslo decreased. Unless you are last to act and/or have reads.
