      Full Tilt No-Limit Hold'em, $0.25 BB (9 handed) Full Tilt Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.com (Format: 2+2 Forums)

      UTG+1 ($22.25)
      MP1 ($21.60)
      MP2 ($6.50)
      Hero ($6.60)
      CO ($36.45)
      Button ($25.70)
      SB ($25.45)
      BB ($30.85)
      UTG ($30.50)

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with A:diamond: , K:heart: .
      UTG raises to $0.85, 3 folds, Hero raises to $2.5, 4 folds, UTG calls $1.65.

      Flop: ($5.35) Q:spade: , 9:spade: , 2:spade: (2 players)
      UTG checks, Hero bets $4.1 (All-In), UTG calls $4.10.

      Turn: ($-1.77) K:club: (2 players, 1 all-in)

      River: ($-1.77) 3:diamond: (2 players, 1 all-in)

      Final Pot: $13.55

      I just won some money in previous hand and I got dealt before I could sit out. I could check behind the flop, but I always play my contibet on flop after check and in position, so I think my push was correct since I had less than pot-sized stack left.

      Any critics beside to leave table with more than 25 BBs? :)

      First of all, Raise from UTG means pretty good hand, thats why with big stack I would fold here.
      In the situation when there was no action before us, I would raise this hand.
      After double-up I try to raise only QQ+ (AK o/s, 99+ sometimes at the very tight table first in)
      But with "only" 26BB like in your situation i would play first in any chart hand.
      So, the bigger stack you have - the tighter you have to play IMO

      The only hand that our opponent might fold here are AJ, TT and JJ? And if he holds one spade, he will most likely call as well.

      So on such a flop I to not make a contibet, even if strategy says otherwise, because of the preflop action (UTG raise/call, could be all from 99+, AJ+, were villain hitedt this board nearly all the time.
