      0,5/1 No-Limit Hold'em (10 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.60 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is UTG with A:club: , K:heart:
      Hero raises to $4,00, 2 folds, MP1 calls $4,00, 6 folds.

      Flop: ($9,50) 8:diamond: , 2:diamond: , Q:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero raises $14,00 (All-In)

      Original c-bet was $6~
      $6/$14 = 45% of my stack therefore I went All-in directly because I was Out of position (40+% stack rule OOP -> Leo)

      But wasn't c-betting/fold a better choice?

      IMO c-bet fold is better
      If every A :diamond: calls here you have even less outs to win. You are in bad shape if a pair with a :diamond: calls you and you have 4 outs and runner runner str8
      So bet/fold flop and on every different turn from ace or king (no :diamond:) check/fold

      I think that your opponent will call you with hands other than a flush in this situation so i like your play.
      35% wts and 38% W$@SD suggest to me that he could call he with just a high :diamond: which he does not actually have the odds to call with, which is a mistake and its good to force opponents to make mistakes...
      Its possible but a bit more unlikely that he could just assume you are a normal shorty cbetting any flop and so call with any pair also still leaving you with a couple of outs.
      oh he could also fold which is good too whats his fold to cbet%?


      Is 384 a good enough sample to make this judgement on though? I'm inclined to make the same play as you though. Tell me if my reasoning is wrong please :p

      I'd make a $7 cbet here, which is 50% so a push is good and gives you just a little more FE.

      6,5$ cbet and fold to a shove I dont like your direct push, you isolate yourself against better hands.
