      Play hand

      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)

      Known players:
      BU (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is BU with K, Q.
      4 folds, CO raises to $0.06, Hero calls $0.06, 2 folds, BB folds.

      Flop: ($0.15) T, 2, 9 (2 players)
      CO bets $0.04, Hero calls $0.04.

      Turn: ($0.23) J (2 players)
      CO bets $0.06, Hero raises to $0.90, CO folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $0.29.

      Should I have went for value raise to get more money in the pot? I just shoved because I didn't want the 4th card to flush get there. Was this too aggressive trying to take the pot down there, or should I have just raised, hope he calls and misses, but then again If he doesn't get the flush and he keeps betting so small, I don't think I would have gotten much out of him on the river.

      Hello Krishjanis,

      Add to full stack if playing BSS.

      Preflop: Well, against that kind of stack I am not a big fan of Calling here. :P While you either don't have a full stack. But of course it's possible but it will be hard to overplay the opponent postflop when he has such a small stack.

      As played
      Postflop: The question is even if we should Call on flop. :D But of course if you went for a Call there then no other way to play vs his stack. Ship it on turn.

      Best regards.
