      0.05/0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.61 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is CO with A:club: , K:spade:
      UTG1 folds, UTG2 calls $0.10, MP1 folds, MP2 calls $0.10, MP3 folds, Hero raises to $0.60, BU calls $0.60, 4 folds.

      Flop: ($1.55) 8:spade: , 9:club: , 5:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.25 (All-In), BU calls $1.25.

      Turn: ($4.05) 3:heart:
      River: ($4.05) 7:diamond: (1 players)


      Final Pot: $4.05

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows high card ace with king kicker (Ac Ks)
      BU shows a pair of queens (Qh Qd)

      BU wins with a pair of queens (Qh Qd)

      First of, the SSS says to bet 2/3 of the pot against one opponent. In this case this is more than half so it's correct to go directly all-in instead. The cold caller in this case I've noticed to play many tables and seems like a decent player. So in this case I felt as if they would have pocket 10s+ with position waiting for a good flop.
      With this in mind, should I have check folded instead?

      Hi Tomohawked

      A Push here is mandatory and gives you the most profit!, Even when he calls you , you arent drawing dead + he also can call you with overcards as well in which you are dominating him.

      Well played and don't mind about opponents on NL10, players there are just bad.
