      Was this a correct play against just 1 opponent or an overplay by me?

      Known players:

      0.05/0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.60 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with K:spade: , A:diamond:
      UTG+2 calls $0.10, 2 folds, Hero raises to $0.50, 3 folds, BB calls $0.40, UTG+2 folds.

      Flop: ($1.15) 3:heart: , 6:club: , 4:club: (2 players)
      BB bets $0.10, Hero raises to $1.90, BB calls $1.80.

        Was meant to be all in here in as 3/4 bet at the pot was .80 and although it wasn't more than 50% of my stack it was close and i would have been committed anyway.

      Turn: ($4.95) T:club: (2 players)
      BB bets $0.10, Hero raises to $0.05 (All-In), BB gets uncalled bet back..

      River: ($5.05) Q:diamond:

      Final Pot: $5.05

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows high card ace with king kicker (Ks Ad)
      BB shows a pair of queens (As Qh)

      BB wins with a pair of queens (As Qh)

      yes, all in on flop vs one player. Ignore the donk bet, he likely has a FD or a smaller Ace, possibly hit a 3 or 4 kicker. go for it mang :D You are very rarely ever drawing dead here.

      Hi Bu11d0g,

      Continuation bet is between 1/2 Pot and 2/3. Without stats it is always 2/3! 3/4 is way too much ;)

      So 1.15/3 x 2 = $0.75 as C-bet on the flop.

      On the Turn I would just check behind as the Flop Board only let a PP call your c-bet or a Drawing hand. In case of a flush draw its now a made hand ;)


      Flop: C-bet 2/3 = $0.75, doesnt make you committed
      Turn: Check/Fold accordingly.

      @ Gerv,

      Thank you your reply to this hand as well as the QQ's.

      Definately made sense with your explanation. I will definately take note for future reference.

      Damn those rushes of blood to the brain :D

      Since its Nl10 and there are many draws or just donkbets by over cards I would push the flop, you are very often ahead and generate maximum fold equity. You have 2 over card outs 1 back-door straight and a lot of fold equity. Nice Hand
