      The first bet I made was purposefully small to make one of them raise me, my question is should I have called him instead of shoving? I was afraid of a flush draw.

      Known players:
      Position:
      Stack
      Hero:
      $4.95
      BB:
      $5.45
      MP1:
      $3.25

      0.02/0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (7 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy.com Elephant 0.102 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is SB with A:heart: , A:spade:
      MP1 calls $0.05, 4 folds, Hero raises to $0.25, BB calls $0.20, MP1 calls $0.20.

      Flop: ($0.75) A:club: , 8:club: , 5:spade: (3 players)
      Hero bets $0.1, BB calls $0.10, MP1 raises to $0.40, Hero raises to $4.70 (All-In), 2 folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back (All-In).

      Final Pot: $1.65

      Hello flowinel,

      Never-EVER! Make such a Cbet. :) Make it standard and don't give them perfect odds. You can't even be sure that they are going to raise. And after you even did what's with the shove? What worse will Call you here on such a board?

      Best regards.
