      I play NL2 MSS.

      Two villains in the flop. I want to make a conti-bet of 3/4 of the pot ($0.28). My stack at the moment was $0.64. As half my stack is $0.32, and since I'm in a multiway pot, I decided to go all-in, since $0.28 was very close to half-stack and I wanted to give extra protection against the two villains and the flush draw.

      Did I play right?

      Hello Elertar!

      Generally I like this play since every Jx, every flushdraw+overcard and straightdraw will call you off and you get max value :)

      I don't like betting $0.28 and shoving a meager stack on the Turn

      Well played!
