      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy hand converter:

      Known players:
      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with Q, Q.
      Hero raises to $0.4, MP3 calls $0.40, CO calls $0.40, 3 folds.

      Flop: ($1.35)
      9, 7, 5 (3 players) Hero bets $1.00, MP3 raises to $2, CO folds, Hero raises to $9.75(All-In), MP3 calls $7.75.

      Turn: ($20.85)
      2 (2 players)

      River: ($20.85)
      K (2 players)

      Final Pot: $20.85.

      the reason why he can raise me is that he got draw or some over cards or overpair. I don't want to call such raise because the board is very drawy so i have to raise him at least on $6, but then in stack will be only few $ so I push all-in.

      Any stats on MP? Well, I think it's OK to push here against unknown since he can have hands like pair+fd, pair+straightdraw, TT.

      However, I think I would rather call the minraise and see a blank turn and donk+shove there instead, because his pair+draw or drawing hands have a lot of equity against us on the flop if we push, but much less on the turn.

      Hope that makes sense.
