      Texas Hold'em NL10 (10 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Ongame Hand Converter v0.2.3 by Life is a Bug.

      Preflop: Hero is BB with A:heart: , K:diamond:
      UTG calls $0.10, 3 folds, MP2 calls $0.10, 3 folds, SB calls $0.05, Hero raises to $0.70, UTG folds, MP2 calls $0.60, SB calls $0.60.

      Flop: ($2.20) J:diamond: , T:club: , 3:club: (3 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks, MP2 checks.

      Turn: ($2.20) 9:spade: (3 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks, MP2 checks.

      River: ($2.20) T:heart: (3 players)
      SB bets $0.50, 2 folds.

      Final Pot: $2.70

      Results follow:

      The pot was 2,20$ and my remaining stack 1,3$. If the pot was at least 2,60$ according to the basic stategy I should have pushed. I had a gutshot draw and 2 overs. Is this small draw enough to push?

      not all of your outs are clean, because of the flushdraw. I think we should discount at least 3. So check/fold is fine. Push is quite close, imo.

      The other thing you can do is to push pre-flop, especially if you had a smaller stack, like 18-16BB. You have an UTG limper (pp possibly) and another limper + you are oop.
