      Villain is unknown. What I want to know is flop play. It's a close call between push and contibet, but I still feel I get better value from worse hands this way. The problem is that even with that bet I'm probably committed against flush draws against whom a push is probably better, but that should be a small part of his range.

      Edit: And I dont think he's folding the draws anyways.

      I don't like a contibet that smal ( <half pot ) on this board. If you don't think he is folding his draws anyway, you should just bet more on the flop. Then it's +EV when he is calling with only a flush draw.
      This way, you almost gave him the odds to draw.

      Yes I noticed the error, I was betting like the pot was just 4$.

      wrong. if you bet 1/2 ps here you infact give him the odds to draw if he really holds the (nut-)FD. because you as a a shortstack either give your hand up on he turn or you commit your stack which gives him implieds.
      that's also true if you bet 2/3. still it protects more and i agree with betting 2/3 ps as a cbet here.

      Hey RahXephon1,

      on such a draw heavy board I simply push flop with stack 1$ more than the pot. You must as well worry about the odds and implied odds. If you decide for smaller c-bet you have to be able to fold if villain completes his draw, but with such a small stack that's not possible, because you're commited and if you are commited villain gets the odds to call your flop bet, so just push drawy boards.

      Regards,
