      nh!

      a standard raise would be 0.60 => pot on river if he calls/raises is 2.05 or bigger.
      since you have 0.85 left in your stack and hold TPTK, you're pot committed anyway but with a river push you don't have any FE. the push on flop is best choice here imo

      Hey JuiceQuadre,

      pushing flop isn't wrong, but betting 2/3 of the pot is enough protection also for most dangerous boards(villains don't have many implied odds on us because we're shortstacks). Besides you probably wouldn't want to push 77-99 as c-bet, but rather bet 2/3. For this reasons I prefer to raise 2/3 of the pot and go broke on turn or to a reraise on the flop.

      Regards!
