      Hero bets $0.90 (All-In), MP2 folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $2.25

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows a pair of queens (Ac Qd)

      Hero wins with a pair of queens (Ac Qd)

      wrong move? check/fold? i decided to push since i was potcommitted already anyway, the turn had a Q, he might not have been ahead, and i might still have some fold equity. i also wanted to maintain my initiative instead of check and let him drive me out.

      Hello Mbml,

      Bet a little bit more postflop to $0.7 and with $0.7 as a c-bet you can see that it is virtually possible to shove post-flop immediately with a backdoor flush, gutshot straight and 1 overcard.

      However I like the play and the Q should make you shove anyways on the Turn.

      Best regards,
      Gerv
