      From now on I don't wait till blinds come, but leave table immediately when I'm over 25BB. How to play in this situation?

      UTG2 folds, Hero raises to $0,40, MP2 folds, MP3 calls $0,40, CO calls $0,40, 3 folds.

      Flop: ($1,35) J:diamond: , 8:club: , K:club: (3 players)
      Hero bets $2,40 (All-In), MP3 calls $1,10 (All-In), CO folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Well, it's ok to wait for the blinds to come. A good idea it to tighten up though. People usually only play QQ+ when overstacked. A double double up always comes in handy =)

      About the hand:

      Preflop: Ok

      Flop: You overbet here... this scares people away. Just place a normal c-bet here. 90c would be a good one

      Turn: Shove it no matter what

      I agree with caltabiano, altough I would bet $1 instead of 90c but it wouldn't be diferent at all :D

      by the way, don't leave inmediatly you get to see free cards until the next bb (well not free, you already payed for them). I used to only play KK+ and open shoving it , but it's just wrong IMO if you get AKs why not raise it? 99 why not raising? It's still +EV to play those hands :)

      dont make those ugly overbets, bet sth like 1$ and shove any turn
