      CO ($34.15)
      BTN ($18.50)

      Dealt to Hero 6:diamond: 6:heart:

      fold, fold, fold, MP1 calls $0.50, fold, fold, fold, Hero calls $0.25, BB checks

      FLOP ($1.50) 7:heart: 6:spade: 7:club:

      Hero bets $1, BB folds, MP1 calls $1

      TURN ($3.50) 7:heart: 6:spade: 7:club: Q:spade:

      Hero bets $2, MP1 calls $2

      RIVER ($7.50) 7:heart: 6:spade: 7:club: Q:spade: 8:diamond:

      i decided to shove the river here because i had just $6 left. Betting less than half of my remaining will look too small and just an obvious value bet i thought.

      Obvious push river, it was the only right choice with your line.


      As I'm concerned I would have slowplay my nuts on the flop, playing check/call. On turn I would have bet I guess, and push river.

      +1

      I would as well be more inclined to c/c flop and lead turn, but since he called you down, nice hand.

      And river is of course easy shove.
