      You have the option between pushing All-In and check/folding on the flop. Betting 1$ makes no sense with just $1.50 left, you want to maximize your foldequity so the direct push is better!

      I would choose check/folding here quite often because an early position limp/caller often has a Pocketpair and the flop looks really good for a Pocketpair, so he will not fold often enough imo.
