      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.60 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is SB with K:spade: , A:club:
      UTG calls $0.50, 5 folds, CO calls $0.50, BU folds, Hero raises to $9.50 (All-In), BB folds, UTG calls $9.00, CO folds.

      Flop: ($20.00) 3:heart: , 5:club: , 7:club:
      Turn: ($20.00) Q:club:
      River: ($20.00) 4:club:

      Final Pot: $20.00

      The only way i can figure out why i did this with just two limpers is that i though being oop the raise of 3.5 would commit me on flop..... I guess it made sense at the time, but this isn't my standard play by any means....

      6BB raise is just fine and evaluate the flop with your Anna.
      If you had QQ+ or even jacks, I would have go and shove as well but only those on the SB only. But thats my own adjustment

      Hi daphunk,

      I think pushing here is not bad, but on higher limits you will get an balancing prob. I don't think you will push your aces here as well. Anyway collecting the dead money preflop would be a nice result and get called by a worse hand is also ok, when he traps you, you cant do anything against it. Even a raise commits you.
