      Nice hand. If you pushed flop you would overbet a little. As played, you will often be able to put your opponent all-in, and that's what you want with such a hand.

      Congratz on your first post! :)

      Hello Paznecht,

      It is better to push postflop out of position because when you compare your remaining stack and your continuation bet size, one can see that you are betting 40% of your stack.

      Or you can see this in a ratio like when you got reraised and you have to look at the Remaining Stack : Raise ratio:

      Remaining Stack PostFlop :: Continuation Bet Size

      When the ratio is 2.5:1 or lower, push post-flop Out of position and heads-up.

      In this case:
      $1.45 : $0.6
      =
      2.48:1 so Push postflop

      As played it is okay as well :)

      Best regards,
      Gerv
