      NL Holdem $0.25(BB) Replayer
      Hero ($10.15)
      BB ($25)
      UTG ($25.71)
      UTG+1 ($21.43)
      UTG+2 ($50.88)
      MP1 ($48.52)
      CO ($39.55)
      BTN ($15.71) 46/17/0/1.6 (v/p/3/af) over 35 H

      Dealt to Hero A:spade: Q:heart:

      fold, fold, fold, fold, CO calls $0.25, BTN raises to $1, Hero raises to $3.25, fold, fold, BTN calls $2.25
      I am using the new TableNinja for Party, and the raise size is a bit goofy.

      FLOP ($7) 4:diamond: 4:heart: 2:heart:
      Hero bets $6.90 (AI), BTN calls $6.90
      If I bet 3/4 pot it is more than 1/2 my stack, so I shove.
      This is the big question here, though:
      The Postflop MSS chart says for Overcards: Bet/Fold
      I felt at the time that this is a bit extreme to be shoving w/ AQ, however perhaps that is the point of MSS -- smaller stack size forces more dramatic play. Or did I just screw up and get lucky?

      TURN ($20.80) 4:diamond: 4:heart: 2:heart: J:spade:

      RIVER ($20.80) 4:diamond: 4:heart: 2:heart: J:spade: A:diamond:

      [spoiler]
      Hero shows A:spade: Q:heart:
      (Pre 60%, Flop 49.0%, Turn 68.2%)

      BTN shows K:heart: 9:heart:
      (Pre 40%, Flop 51.0%, Turn 31.8%)

      Hero wins $19.76

      Hello Vorpal!

      I really like the way you played this hand. Betting like $3 on the Flop, leaving 4$ behind in a pot of $7 is awkward because fi Villain shoves, you are like priced in to call

      This way you risk $7 to win $7 so techincally one has to fold 50% of the time with 0% equity to be break-even. Ofcourse you have equity here + you are flipping versus flushdraws so the EV you get here by shoving is way bigger than c/f or betting normally

      Best regards,
      Gerv
