      My question is: was it right to bet in turn? Sure more sane would be check, but villan could sense weakness and just bet to push me out. Betting 0.70 by mistake make big looses in long run.

      You are already commited to the pot, so you have to push on turn. Although you raised 5bb preflop, and you have 1,3$ left after flop, so should go all-in directly here.

      Cb 2/3 pot size on flop, if that is more than 1/2 of your remaining stack go AI directly. So I also push this flop.

      this.

      As played, nice hand. Even though you don't have made hand according to the strategy on the turn you can safely go all-in, because it's very unlikely that opponent will call you with Qx on this flop, so the Q doesn't change the situation much. When you have an overpair on the flop, you can always push all-in on the turn even though if one overcard comes.

      One thing, please remove the results when you post hands on the forum, it can affect player's judgment.
