      Hey guys,

      My First hand post, i think there is something i'm not quite understanding

      as follows

      1.Party Poker No-Limit Hold'em, $0.10 BB (9 handed) - Party-Poker Converter Tool from

      UTG ($2.59)
      UTG+1 ($1.69)
      MP1 ($1.94)
      MP3 ($6.08)
      CO ($17.98)
      Button ($3.27)
      SB ($10)
      Hero (MP2) ($2.26)
      BB ($2)

      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with A, K
      UTG calls $0.10, 2 folds, Hero raises $0.50, 1 fold, CO calls $0.50, 4 folds

      Flop: ($1.25) 8, 10, 6 (2 players)
      Hero raises to $1.76 (All-In), CO calls $1.76

      Is this the correct play with AK on this flop?

      you should definetly bet the flop, 2/3 of the pot is 83 cents, hm... that's 5 cents short of half of your stack so I think push is correct.

      Yep, I'd also push here, this way you achieve more FE and even against a pair you have 6 outs with 2 overcards and a backdoor flushdraw. I think bet 2/3 of the pot/fold would be too weak here.

      Nice hand.

      i pushed as a contibet cause it was close to half my stack,
      i'm glad my thinking was right.

      Hello Naturally2bad

      Flop Continuation bet should be:
      ($1.25/3)x2 and divide that amount by $1.76 (Your remaining stack) so you know the percentage of your stack you are basically betting on the Flop:

      [($1.25/3)x2] // 1.76 x100 = 47.3%

      If you have to bet 40% of your stack Out-Of-Position, go all-in instead
      If you have to bet 50% of your stack In-Position, go all-in instead

      I hope this makes it all clear,
