      This limit seems very strange after 9 mo of NL 2.
      A 3bet is more than a stack of the old limit, and everything I do seems to be overplaying.

      Party, $0.10/$0.25 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 7 Players

      MP1: $11.67 (46.7 bb)
      Hero (BB): $27.52 (110.1 bb)
      MP2: $21.83 (87.3 bb)
      CO: $19.23 (76.9 bb)
      MP3: $20.74 (83 bb)
      SB: $25.23 (100.9 bb) 1st hand on table, player unknown
      BTN: $24.49 (98 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with Q A
      5 folds, SB raises to $0.75, Hero raises to $2, SB raises to $5.80, Hero calls $3.80
      I felt that this guy was just "defending" his steal.
      Should I have shoved here?

      Flop: ($11.60) 8 7 Q (2 players)
      SB bets $5.81, Hero raises to $21.72 and is all-in, SB folds
      This seemed like a natural move -- am I overplaying this?

      Hello VorpalF2F,

      Preflop: Well, but calling wouldn't make sense either vs unknown there. :P Why would you even want to call a bigger 4bet there vs unknown even if you have position?

      As played
      Postflop: Don't see any reason to shove it here, from what worse do you get called?

      Best Regards.
