      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      $0.25/$0.5 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)

      Known players:
      BB:
      $9.90
      UTG2(Hero):
      $11.25
      MP1:
      $11.15
      MP2:
      $51.90
      MP3:
      $17.85
      CO:
      $9.25
      BU:
      $49.70
      SB:
      $55.85

      Preflop: Hero is UTG2 with A, A.
      Hero raises to $2, MP1 calls $2.00, 3 folds, BU calls $2.00, 2 folds.

      Flop: ($6.75) 8, 3, 4 (3 players)
      Hero bets $9.25(All-In), MP1 folds, BU folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $6.75.

      Results follow:

      Hero shows a pair of aces (A A)
      Hero wins with a pair of aces (A A).



      I know I won this hand with this All-In, but is this even close to the correct play here?

      My thinking at the time was, I can't let it be cheap in case they are holding one diamond, hence the All-In.... Correct line? Or way off base?

      Hey MrMardyBum,

      nice hand. Ordinary 2/3 c-bet would be 4,5$ which is almost half of your stack, so it's best to just shove it for a bit more protection, because you do have to protect on such a draw-heavy board.

      Regards!
