      before the flop you played it right
      on the flop you had an overpair and a gutshot, easy push

      The preflop raise is correct. Since you're playing in position I also do like the normal raise better than a direct push.

      The flop is played perfectly - we definately want to go broke here.

      there were only 3 limpers, so 0.7$ is fine
      what normal raise if he bet 1$ into you ? he had only 2.2$ left, the push is ok

      but i dont understand what is the 'normal raise'? according to you

      I'm talking about the preflop decission. He is almost investing 1/3 of his stack. If he would be in the SB or BB(OOP) I would prefer a push instead of a 0.8$ raise, since it is hard to extract any extra value playing OOP.

      Thus what I meant is, that I prefer the 0.7$ raise instead of a push here, because he is in position and might be able to get extra value postflop.

      push preflop. Pureman is totally correct about the positional advantage, but it just doesn`t matter that much on NL 10, imo. So with 3+ limpers feel free to push.

      actually, I didn`t notice 29BB stack. with such a big stack, you should maybe consider standard 8BB raise. However, you will be committed on flop most of the time. Personally, I would push here even with 29BB stack, given the limit.

      but with 20BB stack its an easy push.
