      I would like to know how do you proceed against unkown(average nl100 player) with 1 OC(Q or J)?

      Bet/fold flop and second barrel turn or perhaps check/call turn?

      Hello Burek2000,

      With a Q or J as overcard I shove it as you did on the Turn, preferably bet more on the Flop is mandatory because you are OOP + Drawy board so something like $6.5

      Pushing postflop is not a bad move in my opinion because of your position and gives bad odds to OCs etc.

      Best regards,
      Gerv

      Pushing flop directly or the turn as second barrel? Could you also tell me how would you play if villain 3-bets flop?

      Both options are okay but:

      A normal c-bet is 41% of your stack and normally I apply the 50%/40% rule I made up with Leo and when my c-bet consists of 40% of my c-bet out of position, I just shove directly. The 50% is whenever you are in position and is standard :)

      If villain 3bets flop well:

      $14.5+$9.5+$5]x0.95 ::9.5
      =
      2.9:1
      =
      25.6% break-even equity

      Now calculate according to Xarry's review how many times you can face something and what your equity is:
      Against TopPair I have x% equity
      Against FD I have x% equity
      Against 2 Overs with 1 being a I have x% equity

      Calculate your mean equity although it is not entirely accurate (some holdings are more common than others) and then you can see whether to push this one

      Best regards,
      Gerv

      flop is standard.

      turn: i would check - call the turn.
      with the push only better hands call you i think.
      with your turn check you give him the chance to bluff you.

      so you get more profit of weaker hands instead of a direct push

      but i also go broke against MP2.
