      Titan Poker Mississippi 0.10/0.20, hand converted by the iPoker Converter at Talking-Poker

      saw flop | saw showdown

      Button skyjacker81 ($9.60)
      SB MiniMASA ($4)
      BB Hero ($4)
      UTG IceCoolBaby ($16.43)
      UTG+1 ukbuk ($28.86)
      MP mmmmmm2 ($2.90)
      MP Elwinjesus ($18.38)
      MP Widukin3 ($14.10)
      CO-1 weberknecht7557 ($44.29)
      CO OriEy ($20.37)

      Preflop: Hero is in the BB with 7:spade: 7:diamond:
      2 folds, mmmmmm2 raises to 0.40, 6 folds, Hero raises to 1.40, mmmmmm2 calls 1.

      Flop (2.90) Q:club: T:spade: A:spade:
      Hero bets 1.60, mmmmmm2 moves all-in for 1.50.

      Turn (6.00) 5:spade:

      River (6.00) K:heart:

      Hero shows 7:spade: 7:diamond:
      mmmmmm2 shows 2:diamond: Q:diamond:

      mmmmmm2 wins 6.00 with One pair, Queen

      So I sit in the BB with 77 and get only 1 minraise and rest is folded to me. As read many times in these forums I treat him as a limper, raise him 3 times and he calls.

      On the flop I put him allin and he (as you can see above) calls with Q2...

      I mean I played it acording to the strategy articles, bet a trash hand vs 1 opp with 2/3 of the pot...

      Maybe I should'vd pushed for the psychologic effect as he was covered anyway...

      in this special case i would push preflop because he is very short and there is no other player in there

      I agree. Don't think that it had changed something, because if he calls the normal reraise I think he would have called also a push.

      But who knows? ;)

      On Titan Poker here on this limit I would push as well against unknown Short Stack. As played, I wouldn´t play after the standard articles and would play check/fold. The reason is, that Short Stacks, who are not playing the SSS, are very likely to call everything here, if they hitted anything. And on this board we face 3 Overcards, a possible flushdraw and straightdraw, where our opponent would call any of this.
