      From what I learnt I should go directly all-in when my stack is less than 1,5x pot size. So, that's what I did. However, I wasn't able to read the article about adjusting raises and reraises so far, so I'm looking forward to learn something new.

      Your stack is not 1,5x potsize, just a tiny difference.
      You might use that tiny difference as an excuse for not moving all-in here directly, but betting $1.80.

      On the other hand, the chance that Villain is holding a 9 or a Q isn't that big. But any next overcard on the turn and river might screw things up anyway.

      I also hate to play hands like 77-TT postflop with overcards, not so easy.

      If you look closely, you'll see that my stack is actually less then 1.5x potsize and therefore I tend to push. And as you said yourself, he's not likely to hold Q or 9, which means I am supposed to be ahead and if I push right away I have no worries about the next overcard. However, a higher PP is not very likely, since he would have raised or reraise preflop.

      When the discussion is over I'll post the results. :)

      Oh boy... my calculation skills badly decrease when I'm tired, that's for sure.
      You're completely right, your stack is smaller than 1,5x pot.

      I often experience these kind of situations, where I don't really feel like moving all-in with such a hand (for example, replace the Q for an A and you're screwed most of the times). So I'm trying to find a way now that makes me less committed on the flop. It should solve some of my problems I'm currently experiencing.

      Hi burek2000,

      raise to 1,5$ pre flop, you should get as much money in as possible when you are ahead. 2 advantages of a bigger pre flop raise are: you generate more fold equity pre flop and you can easily push any flop. On this flop its not that easy against him to play betfold because he is just a fish having 100vpip and 40wts so a push is maybe ok.
