      Should I be worried about pot-size bet on the flop and fold? I had not many hands history on him. But the AF is low for what I had.

      His AF is irrelevant, because 17 hands doesn't mean anything.

      Considering your stacksize you are playing SSS here so I would directly push flop, because your stack is too small to make a raise like this. He won't fold any Qx anyway.

      This,

      Plus, why are you re-raising that small? You should 3x him, something like 0.27-0.30$ on the flop.. But yeah, that bet will be more than 1/2 of your (tiny) stack, so you are better off going all-in as JohnDoe1313 pointed out..

      EDIT: And no, you shouldn't be afraid of his bet on the flop (which isn't pot-sized btw) because you can't expect him to have QQ or AA only on this flop when he bets.. :f_thumbsup:

      Yes I totally agree with the above posters. You play 2NL in which people do random things. Don't get discouraged by that because they make a lot more mistakes than you can ever imagine

      Therefore you are expected to win a lot vs these guys but unf. not today

      I just raise big on the Flop and shove on the Turn

      Best regards,
