      PokerStars No-Limit Hold'em, $0.10 BB (7 handed) - Poker-Stars Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.com

      CO ($4.20)
      Button ($1.80)
      SB ($11.10)
      Hero (BB) ($2)
      UTG ($9.85)
      MP1 ($4)
      MP2 ($10)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with 10, 10
      UTG calls $0.10, 4 folds, SB calls $0.05, Hero raises to $0.50, UTG calls $0.40, 1 fold

      Flop: ($1.10) 8, 4, Q (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.60, UTG calls $0.60

      Turn: ($2.30) 9 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.90 (All-In), UTG calls $0.90

      River: ($4.10) 7 (2 players, 1 all-in)

      Total pot: $4.10 | Rake: $0.20


      My cbet here was too low by mistake.
      After the turn I had less than half the pot left, was it correct to go all-in?

      Hello Deadcat,

      Preflop, there are limping 2 players so you should raise it up to 6bb which is $0.6. In this way, it is an easy shove post-flop then so keep that in mind because you do not want to go to the turn with a ministack with NO Fold-Equity at all ;)

      Postflop: You say it already

      Turn: Doesn't change much so I see the 9 as a blank. Therefore I shove on the Turn. The Queen isn't a dangerous overcard compared to an Ace or King, so with that having said, if the flop was let say 8 4 and K, I would make a c-bet (at least above 55%) and save your money on the Turn regardless if your stack is smaller than the pot.

      Now if the turn came a heart, I just check/fold accordingly because it might have completed a flush for Villain.

      Well played and please don't hesitate if something is unclear,

      Gerv

      You're absolutely right about the preflop raise, didn't notice.
      And it really would've made things much simpler.
      Especially since it was the blank 9d on the turn that completed a set for UTG...

      Thanks!

      How about pushing this one preflop?

      If we bet 6BB we basically have to push any flop OOP in case we get called by UTG.

      I only like to shove it when I have to invest 35% or more of my stack:
      0.6/2 x100 = 30%

      Shoving is okay but will not attract worser hands like KJ/QT/87s or low-med PPs to call you. mostly you will pickup 2bb risking 20bb and you have to do that ten times in a row to be profitable thus it is high Variance

      ...it's NL25. :) It depends how many fish is sitting at the table, but I'm getting called with Ax or low PPs quite often, also KJ. Also, I think I pick up blinds often enough to make it profitable. And I think it's much worse playing OOP after the flop.
