      If you were sure that you are ahead you should protect your hand against flush and AK on the river (this is just begginer opinion:) )

      i contibet this flop against 2 who checked to me!
      you can push directly.


      My question is, can i just contibet 5$ and fold to a raise.

      i think a 5$ bet against 2 opponents looks stronger than a direct push...

      opinions?

      I would push here, because Q is not so common holding on low limits and there are two on the flop. Also, I think you can make some lower PPs call you.

      @wuusaa I don't like to c-bet half of my stack, you are very commited after such a bet and on low limits, people think they can make you fold with a 3-bet as long as you have at least 1BB in your stack, so push represents a lot more FE than half pot raise. Btw, I know people bet much less on higher limits with same effect, but not here imo...

      good point

      but think of the other side...
      you should play your made hands and your trash hands equal on the flop.

      so if they do not respect a std contibet, your made hands get more profitable too!?


      but this is all just my opinionen

      would be interesting to hear a more experianced voice about the push vs bet-fold thing

      True, BUT this is only the case heads-up, not against several opponents, where we play trash hands check/fold.

      On this board however, after both check to you, I push. Of course most people with sense play check/raise here oop with 66 or a Q, but I think a lot of worse pocket pairs will call you aswell. If they don't you still pick up a pretty nice pot. :)

      bet/call or push is both fine, depending on how you would play other holdings here

      but i would definitely bet, the Q is unlikely and a pocket might pay you off
