      (Raknyo is dealt Kd As.)

      Pre-flop:
      Ivailo_minev raises $0.05.
      RedUltra folds.
      Dogones folds.
      m.d.a. calls for $0.07.
      Xourito calls for $0.07.
      Raknyo raises $0.28.
      marvm folds.
      fabadona folds.
      Ivailo_minev raises $0.28.
      m.d.a. folds.
      Xourito goes all-in for $0.75.
      Raknyo goes all-in for $2.14.
      Ivailo_minev goes all-in for $1.11.
      $0.75 is pushed back to Raknyo.

      Figured that there was enough money already in the pot to make it profitable to just push, both players were unknown as well.


      (Raknyo is dealt Ad Ks.)

      Pre-flop:
      kasiasta92 folds.
      MasivAtaKK folds.
      Baroon78 folds.
      Raknyo raises $0.06.
      marvm raises $0.19.
      RedUltra folds.
      preacherd folds.
      apsurt folds.
      MyAutumn folds.
      henryjohnson folds.
      Raknyo calls for $0.19.

      The flop comes
      4d 4h 5c.

      Raknyo checks.
      marvm bets $0.12.
      Raknyo raises $0.24.
      marvm calls for $0.24.

      The turn comes 9h.

      Raknyo goes all-in for $3.20.

      Sensed weakness, is it a good enough reason to push though?

      Hello Raknyo,

      And please post 1 hand per thread. :)

      Hand #1
      Raise it bigger ~$0,40 even but afterwards against his stack shouldn't be a problem as long you 3bet there against him which means we also usually plan to play for the stacks.

      Hand #2
      Preflop: Raise if 4xBB and rather fold to the raise, you are out of position and in long run you ain't going to play the hand profitable by calling.

      As played
      Postflop: Fold it, such a min-raise is pretty pointless here and of course go all-in on turn doesn't make much sense either.

      Best Regards.
