      Preflop: Hero is SB with 9:heart: , 9:spade:
      UTG2 calls $0.10, MP1 calls $0.10, 4 folds, Hero raises to $0.70, 2 folds, MP1 calls $0.60.

      River: ($4.70) 5:club: (1 players)

      Final Pot: $4.70

      My Main question is about the my raise. I raised to 70c because of 2 limpers and +1 for being OOP. I'll be pretty much pot commited then on almost any flop.

      Is it better to just shuff in this spot? And if im in similiar spots are there any arguements for just raising instead of going all in?

      I would stick to the 70c raise, and move on any flop unless it contains 2 or more overcards. Cause u basically only have to win that pot 33% of the time to break even....but i dont c myself winning vs A K x or A Q x etc flops all to often.

      Hey RaWRpewpew,

      pushing all-in preflop is certainly +EV, but I don't really like it because you have a 22.5BB stack and there are only 2 limpers, so shoving here would be an overbet. So, you have option to raise standard 6BB or 7BB with one additional for being OOP. I prefer raising standard 6BB to not commit myself, but both options work, some players add 1BB for being OOP, some don't, depends on your play style.

      As played, nice hand, you have to shove this flop with less than potsize left.
