      PokerStars No-Limit Hold'em, $1.00 BB (7 handed) - Poker-Stars Converter Tool from

      saw flop | saw showdown

      Button ($100)
      SB ($159.60)
      BB ($100)
      UTG ($112.05)
      MP1 ($62.35)
      Hero (MP2) ($21.50)
      CO ($74.60)

      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with ,
      1 fold, MP1 calls $1, Hero bets $5, CO calls $5, 3 folds, MP1 calls $4

      Flop: ($16.50) , , (3 players)
      MP1 checks, Hero bets $16.50 (All-In), 2 folds

      Total pot: $16.50 | Rake: $0.80

      Hero didn't show A, J (nothing).
      Outcome: Hero won $15.70

      All-in was stupid decision, wasn't it? Should I bet half-pot with this monster draw? MP1 was 36/7, 42 hands, CO unknown.

      I think to extract more value out of hands like these a 1/2 pot size flop bet would suffice, especially with villain's loose PF range.

      Your All-In is standard, so it's not really a mistake, besides settling for those $16 is not so bad since you have a draw and can always end up not improving. But a 1/2 pot size bet might also help getting more value, it's a very scary board for your opponents.

      I just push when miles Ahead on flop like you did. best odds for my hand.

      If you bet 1/2 pot flop your telling your opponents "I have a hand I want to go broke with that i obviously want you to call. Theres no way I'm folding turn either, CALL ME!" If thats not a good way to let villains know you have a good hand i don't know what is!

      You want to see 2 streets in once otherwise your monsterdraw is not really worth much.

      c/R is only acceptable if CO has really high Aggression Flop as in Floating but then you need >5k hands on him

      You would shove here as well if you had 99/TT/QQ so I like to shove it here as well. Especially when Villains are fish.
