      Hell yeah, why not :D
      If you raise this bet to $4.50, you're committed on the turn for sure.
      And protecting your 2 pair isn't such a bad idea here.

      Pushing gives you some FE, besides that you're probably ahead here.

      I was ahead at flop, but lost. Now i am wondering is this push EV+

      Results: $21 Pot ($1 Rake)
      SB showed K:club: J:heart: (two pair, Kings and Jacks) and WON $20 (+$10 NET)
      Hero mucked 3:heart: Q:diamond: and LOST (-$10 NET)

      In this case, definitely, as you are in front when you push, and he calls with just better than even money, and he has only five outs on the flop, and eight on the turn. Put the hands in equilator, and see what you get back. Massively winning bet for you, and terrible call by him, but I guess he sees the short stack as a bluffer who just wants to take it away from him. That is exactly what you want. And this is why you should get your money in as early as possible in these kind of situations. Getting your money in when you are in front is always winning.

      Nice hand.That`s of course EV+ decision on flop and you can add some FE.
      Against 25% calling range you are in front 82% vs 17% .It`s more than enough to be EV+ :D
      Good luck. :)
      P.S make some new fiends like Equilator http://www.pokerstrategy.com/software/6/ or Poker Stove

      Hi gambleris,

      everything has already been said about this hand. You did well, I think, even with the overbet on the flop, but raising pot size ($5 here) just makes no sense so well done.

      See you posting some more!
