      Hey imson0ob,

      c-betting is always better than direct push when c-bet will be less than 50% of your stack. This time 2.75-3$ would be enough to c-bet and that's less than 50% of your stack, so there's no need to overbet.

      Please remove the results when you post hands on the forum as they can affect opinion of the people who participate in the hand discussion but are not important to make the correct play.

      Regards,
