      as a continuation bet yes according to basic strategy. I am interested in a judge's view on this. I would have defintely bet out.

      Hey Tim64,

      nice hand, again! :f_thumbsup:

      On the flop I wouldn't really be afraid of T as overcard in HU and as you said you still have outs to a set/straight. Besides, on the flop your stack is barely the size of the pot, so you can't make a regular 2/3 pot c-bet and the push is way to go. You also need to protect against overcards on later streets.

      Regards,
