      I am looking for advice on how the below hand was played after getting K6o in BB and hitting two pair on the flop. Should i have just folded on the turn as he had called my raise on the flop?

      Hi Bu11d0g,

      Once again, results doesnt matter so please leave those out.

      As played, I would be betting 30c which doesnt pot commits you whenever a flush is coming up (thirds )

      But with 2 pair, its inevitable your going to shove it anyway
      Well played!

      please dont make such overbets.
      potsize on the flop, somewhat below potsize on the turn and the rest on the river.

      A third club is absolutely no reason to slow down here! Only an 8 would be bad because it counterfeits your 2pair.

      @ IngolPoker

      The reason i went all-in on the turn was that a 3/4 pot bet would have been .70 which would have been more than half my stack. According to the strategy if you have to invest more than 50% of your stack then you push or does this only concern the flop and not the turn or river.

      but if you make a normal bet on the flop you cant push the turn :)

      @ IngolPoker.

      Now im confused :D

      Should i have gone all-in on the flop then or just bet the flop, turn, river rather than the way i played it in OP.

      you bet too much post-flop, if you only made the pot sized or 2/3 bet on the flop, you wouldn't have been pushed into a position of all in , after the turn.

      He means that if you would bet it correctly on the flop (potsized) and Mp3 calls you, the pot would be then $0.25 times 3 = $0.75

      Your remaining stack would be $1.55 thus you can bet potsized or 2/3 again on the Turn. But Pushing is considered overbetting ;)

      Both plays are OK but pushing it like you did will create FoldEquity, you do not want.

      thank you guys. now i understand.

      thats probable where i've made a few mistakes then as if its usually a small pot like that on the turn, i always bet a min of 0.40 rather than say 0.25 as in this instance :rolleyes:
