      First villains hand at the table.

      $0.25/$0.5 No Limit Holdem
      4 players
      Converted at weaktight.com

      Stacks:
      BTN ($21.62)
      SB ($25.50)
      Hero (BB) ($68.00)
      [BTN posted $0.5]

      Pre-flop: ($1.25, 4 players) Hero is BB A:spade: 6:heart:
      BTN checks, Hero raises to $2.50, 2 folds, BTN calls $2

      Flop: A:heart: T:club: 2:club: ($5.25, 2 players)
      BTN checks, Hero bets $5, BTN goes all-in $19.12, Hero calls $14.12

      Standard?

      Hello,

      I'd bet a bit less on flop, ~$4 and might find a fold button.

      Best regards,
      Rensu

      to be honnest I never do such PF. raises with A-rag OOP (and Im a LAG player), you can justify it because hes a shortstack (so youre loking for a TP hand to stick it in but 40bb is not a real SS), for me its kinda close eventho he posted the blind

      this hand is wrong, how can BTN check 1st?

      anyway I bet less on flop (in my opinion its almost must, because if you bet pot he will shove air+weak draw rarely because he saw your strenght by the potbet) so I bet 3.5-4$ and call a shove of course

      Converter messed something up, don't know why.
      IIRC: villain posted in the CO, I was on the BTN.

      Also, glad to have a confirmation that it is OK to play top pair no kicker against unknown semi-shortie :)

      If he had like 20-30bb it would be def. better for your TPNK, 40bb is like borderline for going broke here
