      quite tricky. unlucky card on the turn. it is possible that he called with a hand like QJ,QT,Q9,98,KQ (or TT,JJ).

      he can also have KJ,99,AT,AJ,88 or a random FD.

      still you can't fold here, can you? you need to win this pot only 20% of the time since he has only 2$ left.
      so you can just as easily bet out yourself to get value from a hand like KJ.
      so no reason here to make an exception to the rule that you push any turn if you have a made hand on the flop.

      again, i would bet more on the flop since it is really draw-heavy.
      you should pay attention to this, i saw this in some other hands you posted today.

      so b/c flop $2 and shove turn (or shove flop yourself if you like).

      he only has $2 left on turn so I guess you have to push. Nasty card but you get very good odds.

      I like to cbet $2 here.

      I think you should push turn given his stack size, you are both commited on the turn anyway. Off course if he sees your bet as a sign of weakness, you are maybe able to extract more money from him, but still IMO pushing the flop is the cleanest decision.

      Effective stacksize is $3.75 flop, and you bet $2 which is 50% >> so push push push flop :)

      It sounds like overkill but I think you have to play it this way


      The other method is cBet flop and shove any Turn
