      0.1/0.25 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.67 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is BB with 4:diamond: , 4:heart:
      6 folds, SB calls $0.15, Hero checks.

      Flop: ($0.50) 7:diamond: , J:club: , 4:club: (2 players)
      SB bets $0.25, Hero raises to $0.75, SB raises to $1.25, Hero raises to $6.15 (All-In), SB calls $3.25 (All-In), Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Turn: ($9.50) 3:diamond:
      River: ($9.50) K:club: (2 players)

      Final Pot: $9.50

      ok in the end I managed to extract the maximum value out of him. But I'm still not sure how I should have betted. SSS says that we should all-in after a push. But I was thinking that the pot was so small and he might just fold a marginal hand if I did an all-in right away.

      He just minbet, so pushing in unraised pot and 1BB bet would be too much, you did right thing when you raised him, but I think you should raise him a bit bigger ~1-1.25$ and of course you go broke after he raises you again.

      nh, i would have played the same way, but raising a bit more isnt bad too, as protection against draws/pot building

      Hello Mbml,

      I definitly raise preflop 4bb against this sb completer to get the pot right there with 4:d4

      As played, you did the right thing by reraising to $0.75 and going all-in when he min3betted you to $1.25

      Best regards,
