      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with A:spade: , Q:diamond:
      3 folds, Hero raises to $2.00, 3 folds, SB calls $1.75, BB folds.

      Flop: ($4.50) 6:diamond: , 4:club: , K:heart: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $4.75 (All-In), SB calls $4.75.

      Turn: ($14.00) 7:spade:
      River: ($14.00) 4:heart: (1 players)


      Final Pot: $14.00

      It seems to me this is a fair/good board to c-bet on. But should I check behind? Also, as per the previous post, with a 13.5bb stack, should I just be openpushing this hand?
      Thanks

      Hey Tim64,

      13.5BB is boarder line case without any dead money in the pot. I would probably go for a raise, but pushing is close. On tight tables I would make it 3BBs and push to any reraise, on the other hand I think pushing is better if there are fish at the table who would be capable of making a hero call.

      But in general, I would advise you to rebuy to 18-20BBs when you fall below 15BBs untill NL100 to get as much value as you can out of bad players.

      As played, standard c-bet push.
