      Actually I think your betsize on the flop is too small. It's important to bet stronger when the board is drawy.

      I don't know the solution for this hand since you're commited anyway cause of your stacksize. Maybe if you make it $0.65 pre flop and shove the flop with a $1.38 stack in a $1.42 pot... But maybe this betsize preflop is too big... :f_frown:

      You're already commited on the flop. You shouldn't bet only half pot on this board since you need to protect your hand and extract maximum value. So you have to bet around $0.80 / $ 0.90 wich is bigger than half your stack so you should shove the flop anyway.

      The problem is that when you shove (as played) you're overbetting the flop and we should try to avoid such a thing. That's the idea of the bigger pre flop raise.

      So when you shove the flop you get maximum value when you hit and maximum fold equity when you don't hit the flop. ;)

      The flop is superdrawheavy, if he is chasing flushdraws then shoving the Flop is the best play because you end the play right there so there is no annoying turnplay

      As played I fold the Turn, everything connects, 2pairs, straights, flushes
