      BB:
      $8.90
      MP1:
      $5.80
      Hero:
      $2.00

      0.05/0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.65 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with A:heart: , Q:heart:
      2 folds, MP1 calls $0.10, Hero raises to $0.50, 4 folds, BB calls $0.40, MP1 folds.

      Flop: ($1.15) 7:heart: , 2:diamond: , K:diamond: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.70, BB raises to $1.50, Hero folds, BB gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $2.55

      I really don't like situations like this one.. I had to make a 2/3 pot contibet, witch is around 0.8$ >1/2 my remaining stack, so push against one opponent, rigth? But is this really the right choice with one overcard and such a contibet:remaining stack ratio?
      So I decaided- bet/fold, weak play?

      You said it yourself. 2/3rds = more than half your stack = push. No way of getting around that, so push next time :)

      +1

      I always push with stack less than 150% of the pot. That way you represent much more strenght for a little more money and even if you don't hold the best hand, you still have some outs to improve most of the time, sometimes even more than you would expect. ;)

      @burek: i dont like this, 1,5x the pot is too much

      push flop here, stick to the rules

      the board is ugly for your opponent, too!

      When you hold 1,5x pot and you have to c-bet 2/3 of the pot, that's half of your stack and you should push, right? I don't see the reason why pushing with 1,5x is too much if you should push when your c-bet contains 50% of your stack. Seems like a contradiction to me... :rolleyes:

      2x 2/3 = 4/3 = 1,33 and not 1,5
