      It is not ok for you to play sss when you have almost 70BB in your stack.

      After I read this, I though it is nl2, but it is nl5. Anyway you trash hand at the flop, as a king is on a board, but after cbet you have only 0,28$ to call so you can't fold this hand.

      "Was it ok for me to push after flop, or should I be scared of AK,KK,AA? "
      On this limit you should be scared of any Kx hand :X

      Nice hand, well played. Villain can be pushing with a pretty wide range of inferior holdings here: A-x flushdraws, mid pocket pairs, MPTK.

      Hello RahXephon1,

      preflop is standard.

      On the flop your effective stack is only 0.73$, because you're heads-up and your opponent only has this much left in the stack. For this reason it's the same as if you had only 0.73$ in your stack. So, your c-bet is more than 50% of your effective stack and therefore just push flop, because otherwise you have to call opponent's all-in anyway since you're commited.

      As played, you have to call your opponent's push, because you are commited after the c-bet.

      Was it ok for me to push after flop, or should I be scared of AK,KK,AA?


      There's no need to be scared, c-bet is standard play and if opponent happens to hit a K this time, it's bad luck, but you have to c-bet, because otherwise you're giving up against worse hands most of the time. If your effective stack is big enough to play bet/fold, then giving up is ok with K on the board, but not when you're OOP and don't have stack(effective stack) big enough to play bet/fold.

      I hope it's understandable what I wrote, but if it's still something unclear just ask away. :)
