      Known players:

      0.1/0.2 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.49 by

      Preflop: Hero is MP1 with Q:diamond: , Q:club:
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.80, MP2 calls $0.80, 5 folds.

      Flop: ($1.90) 5:club: , 2:spade: , K:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP2 bets $3.00, Hero ???

      I go for the push, if he had the K, I think he would bet normally (2/3 pot), what do you think?

      If you were planning to call his bet, why didn't you bet in the first place? You could bet 2/3 of the pot instead of checking.

      I am also trying to get my Short stack strateby better so don't blindly follow.... :)

      directly push! check on the flop seems really bad...

      Not a direct push, but cbet (2/3) flop. Just the normal play. Fold to a raise.

      Checking the flop is wrong here, of course he might hold the King, but a big part of his range also is Ax, so the K could be a scare card for him as well.

      But 2/3pot bet will be around $1.30, which means you have $1.60 left.
      So I think both ways are possible here.
      But maybe in this situation it's better to make a 2/3bet, so you can fold on a reraise (which he will only do when holding a K)

      Thanks for the replies. :D

      I know about the c-bet, I think I might have timed out on that table. :rolleyes:

      As villain was loose-aggressive, I put him on Ax, pushed, and he showed me A7s (and for one time, he didn't hit the A or a backdoor flush).
