      Hero (UTG+1): $0.71
      UTG+2: $0.60
      MP1: $0.91
      MP2: $2.00
      CO: $0.71
      BTN: $1.50
      SB: $0.87
      BB: $2.10
      UTG: $2.25

      Pre Flop: ($0.03) Hero is UTG+1 with J :diamond: A :club:
      1 fold, Hero raises to $0.06, UTG+2 calls $0.06, MP1 calls $0.06, 3 folds, SB calls $0.05, 1 fold

      Flop: ($0.26) 5 :heart: 5 :diamond: J :heart: (4 players)
      SB bets $0.02, Hero raises to $0.31, UTG+2 folds, MP1 folds, SB calls $0.29

      Turn: ($0.88) Q :spade: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.34 all in, SB calls $0.34

      River: ($1.56) J :spade: (2 players - 1 is all in)

      Final Pot: $1.56
      Hero shows J :diamond: A :club: (a full house, Jacks full of Fives)
      SB shows 9 :heart: 7 :heart: (two pair, Jacks and Fives)
      Hero wins $1.49
      (Rake: $0.07)

      I could have shoved on the flop, but I was afraid the only ones I would get any action from if I did so are people who already have me beat. On the other hand, if I instead shove on the turn I give people with flush draws just about the right pot odds to call me.

      Hey Jale,

      On microlimits, I am more of a fan of overbetshoving the Flop because as you say: you give odds away to the flushdraws that chase their draws.

      That said I think people on your limits will chase their draws no matter what

      Best regards,
