      lol.... you played the hand corectly, but that's the worst comment ever:D

      you had less than potsize left, so it's an automatic push

      According to the basic strategy I should have check folded. On the flop I had 2 opponents, not one. Any 2 beats me. Suppose the flop was 10 8 10, or 2 J 2. In these situations it's still a push?

      You have the best hand here most of the times, easy push.

      You have a made hand in this situation. Only 2 you could ever realistically put villain on is A2 and if they did play A2 like this then they got lucky and you pay them off. Basic strategy says push here.

      1. You have less then the pot size so you need to play contibet push.
      2. You have a made hand so pushing is what you'd like ;) .

      I don't understand this. Basic strategy says: "If the pot is twice as big as your remaining stack or even bigger, you move all-in no matter what kind of hand you are holding and what your opponents are doing."
      If I have less then the pot size but more than 1/2 pot I should always go all-in?

      Sorry, the second point should've been the first one ;) .

      When you have a made hand AND stack smaller than the pot size, you move all-in. When you have trash, you move all-in only if there's one oponent and he checks to you or you're out of position against one. Against two it'd be a check/fold.

      But in this hand you were having absolutely strong hand (an overpair) so it's a push.

      I see several problems in your basic SSS:
      1) your raise preflop 4xBB+1 per limper, should be 1.25 and against one limper preflop even more important (quotes-Annie Dukes-you can not save money on prefop raises;Poker for dummies-Make an incorrect move up front and you run the risk of rendering each subsequent decision incorrect, regardless of whatever else you might do.)
      2)On flop you have overpair-made hand,so easy push;pot bigger than your stack and your stack:your raise ratio 1:1,and someone might have flush draw-even easier push).I think if you raised preflop right amount ,it would be easier push for you.You do contibet when you not hit flop-thrash hand,when you have made hand,then 2/3 pot size bet or all in;made hand and bet in front of you all in. :rolleyes:
      Good luck :)

      It's NL15 so pf raise is fine
