      Hi all,

      I'm not sure if I played this hand as well as possible. Wouldn't be better to push my stack at the flop as c-bet? Or is c-bet right decision when I'm not in position?

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      $0.02/$0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)

      Known players:
      CO:
      $4.85
      BU:
      $5.17
      SB(Hero):
      $0.95
      BB:
      $5.00
      UTG2:
      $5.00
      MP1:
      $5.77
      MP2:
      $5.62
      MP3:
      $5.00

      Preflop: Hero is SB with A, K.
      UTG2 calls $0.05, 5 folds, Hero raises to $0.25, BB folds, UTG2 calls $0.20.

      Flop: ($0.55) T, 5, 2 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.30, UTG2 raises to $0.8, Hero folds, UTG2 gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $0.85.

      Thank for your answers.

      Nice hand. According to basic strategy you played 100% correct. We push direct on flop when c-bet is 50% or more of your stack and 0.30$ is less than 50% of your stack on the flop.

      When you get familiar with equity, outs and odds, you can call this hand because of good odds and you have 2 overcards and backdoor flushdraw, but that's a bit advanced for NL5 and needs some calculations.
