      On flop your stack is 1.50, therefor 0.80 is more than half your stack and you should push. So, push flop and avoid unnecessery hard turn decisions ;)

      so push on the flop all in with nothing, just because it's more than half of my stack at the table?

      i played just a conti bet, but dont wanted to fold on the Turn because i was pot commited...

      next time all in such situation... hm, i don't know what i should think about this...

      PS.: played 2k hands today -> all in all -1$ (Frustrating :( )

      that's the reason why you should push and not contibet with such a low remaining stack.

      You can also add an additional BB to your preflop raise because you're out of position and you have an even easier push on the flop.

      With 2 overcards and I am about to invest 45%~ of my stack, I tend to just push it right away. Backdoor straights/flushes makes life also easier to push it just instantly.

      You want to avoid situations like how you played it with an Ace on the Turn ;)
