      I think I would have played this the way you did.
      But maybe you can push the flop with 2 overcards, a gutshot and a backdoor flush draw, but I really doubt it (to be honest, I don't think you can..)

      The only thing i would have done differently is betting on the river. I think i would not have gone all-in. Maybe 1/3 - 1/2 of the pot to get a caller. But i am not sure if anyone would fall into the "trap" on these limits.

      Betting only half or 1/3 or 2/3 is not so trapy. On this limits players are more clever, so putting all-in is better trap for thinking player...after some thinking push on flop would be more resonable...

      I am quite sure you made right move by checking the flop and turn, because I had almost identical hand and experienced players posted many good posts and explanations, so I suggest you take a look at it, because it was a very good thread....

      Nl25, AKo, flop play

      I think it's just fine. No pushing without position on the flop I'm afraid. Well played on the river, good chance someone will try to catch you bluffing.

      I would push it
      co openlimps, button calls
      the board is not the best possible, but i think we have enough FE here

      as played is also fine, but i think push is better
