      Full Tilt Poker $0.10/$0.25 No Limit Hold'em - 7 players

      BB: $24.15
      UTG: $8.35
      UTG+1: $30.90
      MP: $58.35
      CO: $27.20
      Hero (BTN): $5.20
      SB: $14.30

      Pre Flop: Hero is BTN with K :diamond: K :spade:
      4 folds, Hero raises to $0.75, SB calls $0.65, 1 fold

      Flop: ($1.75) J :heart: 7 :spade: 4 :diamond: (2 players)
      SB bets $1, Hero raises to $4.45 all in, SB calls $3.45

      Turn: ($10.65) K :heart:

      River: ($10.65) 8 :diamond:


      First off I know I should have raised to $1 and not .75c I just didn't want them to fold because a few hands before the same situation came and they folded my aces :[

      Was my push on the flop to the $1 raise correct?

      Thanks.

      As you said, preflop $1, easy push on the flop.

      Hey DJG,

      from sb you should've beted even more than 4bb+1 since you already posted 0.5 and your oponent did twice as much. I think you can easily bet $1.25 here pf and it makes difference on the flop.

      Also, with $1.75 pot and $1 bet your raise is just a $0.7 overbet (pot size raise would be $3.75). No need to divide it into two underbets.

      What exactly do you mean with your post?
      He's sitting on the button right now and why do you mean with "you already posted 0.5"?

      Could you explain it all a bit more?
      Thanks!

      Oh, sorry, I got mistaken. Though he was on the sb, so he already posted 0.5BB. Don't pay attention to my previous evaluation then.

      From BU it's of course ok to raise 3bb. Flop push according to my previous post, just fine.
