      I think I should have checked the flop, but being that he called UTG, I assumed he either had a small pair or Ax
      He probably would have laid a value bet on the turn, at which point I could have folded if I hadn't of caught my out.

      I think your line was good. You was the agressor preflop, so your cbet had nice FE, and depending on your stack you had to move allin.

      Your converter isn't really working properly.

      The pot on the flop is $2.30 (not $2.00, converter forgot the blinds), so with a remaining stack of $2.60 this is an easy push heads-up.

      Maybe the converter counted rake or sth?

      Still, it's ok to push in this situation. There's a choice between bet 2/3 pot and a push, check is out of question. Since pushing is easy and profitable, go for it.

      Also, brian997, see more hands of your!

      You can see the rake accumulated at the bottom.
      It's $0.07, a little less than we miss on the flop :P

      It also says "UTG calls $0" :D

      Oh yeah, something's wrong, but still push is ok and that's pretty much all that interests me ;) .

      Yeah I'm not sure whats wrong with the converter :-/
      I use hold 'em manager, so I just copied the hand history in an online converter....

      Villian had pocket 5s fyi :(
      This was the first hand that I have lost in a while (that I wasn't sure if I played right)

      Oh, 55're ok. I mean if he limps them for set value against a short stack it's not profitable for him, and we want things not to be profitable for our oponents ;) .

      So there is no point fearing small pairs right, since 87.5% of the time they'll lose

      Against any pair with a two non-paired cards with a preflop all-in you are an underdog BUT if he calls the flop only after hitting set, you can be pretty sure it's profitable for you. It'd be profitable for them only if you were a full stack (if you're interested, read some of the bss articles about the 'call20' rule).

      See you posting some more!
