      Final Pot: $18.65

      I believe I'm comitted to call villain's flop push given the pot odds. One other thought: given villain's short stack, is there any merit in just pushing the flop?
      Thanks

      nh, I don't think you should push; imo it's better to give villain some room to (semi)bluff.

      I think its a b/c bluffcatch but it might be better to bluffcatch by Check/Pushing so he can bluff his complete range.

      Hey Tim64,

      I usually don't give credit to villains when HU and there's only 1 OC on the board to my PP. Specially when villain is LAGish and the board offers draws. So, as Gonzo and DaPhunk said, I prefer to give bet/call and give villain some room to bluff or even c/r but for that I'd like to check bet vs missed c-bet first.

      Pushing would also be profitable here, but less than bet/call or check/push. So, nice hand.

      Regards,
