      OK, I've got two hands with JJ on a paired board, then a third hand that doesn't fit that mold, but I'll stick it in anyway:

      Hand 1 -
      No-Limit Hold'em, $0.10 BB (8 handed)

      UTG ($10)
      UTG+1 ($9.70)
      MP1 ($9)
      MP2 ($26.10)
      CO ($9.35)
      Button ($10)
      Hero ($2.05)
      BB ($12.85)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with J:heart: , J:spade: .
      [color:#666666]2 folds[/color], MP1 calls $0.10, [color:#666666]3 folds[/color], [color:#CC3333]Hero raises to $0.5[/color], [color:#666666]1 fold[/color], MP1 calls $0.40.

      Flop: ($1.10) T:diamond: , 5:heart: , T:heart: [color:#0000FF](2 players)[/color]
      [color:#CC3333]Hero bets $1.55 (All-In)[/color], MP1 calls $1.55.

      Turn: ($4.20) Q:diamond: [color:#0000FF](2 players, 1 all-in)[/color]

      River: ($4.20) 3:club: [color:#0000FF](2 players, 1 all-in)[/color]

      Final Pot: $4.20

      Was it OK to go all-in here, or should I have just stuck with 1/2 (or more?) pot c-bet? I was trying to discourage someone with an A, K, or Q from drawing...although it didn't work.

      Hand 2 -
      No-Limit Hold'em, $0.10 BB (9 handed)

      UTG+1 ($11.65)
      MP1 ($9.70)
      MP2 ($10.60)
      MP3 ($29.60)
      CO ($10)
      Button ($9.85)
      SB ($7.60)
      Hero ($1.85)
      UTG ($11.20)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with J:spade: , J:heart: . CO posts a blind of $0.10.
      [color:#666666]1 fold[/color], UTG+1 calls $0.10, [color:#666666]3 folds[/color], CO (poster) checks, [color:#666666]1 fold[/color], SB completes, [color:#CC3333]Hero raises to $0.7[/color], UTG+1 calls $0.60, CO folds, SB folds.

      Flop: ($1.60) 8:heart: , 8:club: , 6:heart: [color:#0000FF](2 players)[/color]
      [color:#CC3333]Hero bets $1.15 (All-In)[/color], UTG+1 folds.

      Final Pot: $2.75

      Same question here...although this time it did work (I know, I know...I'm not supposed to be results-oriented.)

      Hand 3 -
      No-Limit Hold'em, $0.10 BB (8 handed)

      Button ($5.10)
      SB ($10)
      BB ($16.20)
      Hero ($1.85)
      UTG+1 ($22.35)
      MP1 ($10.95)
      MP2 ($9.10)
      CO ($9.85)

      Preflop: Hero is UTG with K:diamond: , A:diamond: .
      [color:#CC3333]Hero raises to $0.4[/color], UTG+1 calls $0.40, [color:#666666]5 folds[/color], BB calls $0.30.

      Flop: ($1.25) 8:diamond: , Q:club: , 7:diamond: [color:#0000FF](3 players)[/color]
      BB checks, [color:#CC3333]Hero bets $0.7[/color], UTG+1 calls $0.70, BB folds.

      Turn: ($2.65) 2:heart: [color:#0000FF](2 players)[/color]
      [color:#CC3333]Hero bets $0.75 (All-In)[/color], UTG+1 calls $0.75.

      River: ($4.15) 8:heart: [color:#0000FF](2 players, 1 all-in)[/color]

      Final Pot: $4.15

      Was the 1/2+ pot flop bet OK, or should I have just gone all-in directly? I didn't realize until afterward that my stack was less than 1.5x the pot at the flop. ($1.25 pot; $1.45 stack)

      1) easy all in according to the beginners strategy

      2) easy all in according to the beginners strategy

      3) easy all in, you have two overcards + the nut flush draw so get your money in

      Good deal, thanks frzl...I though maybe I was being too overzealous with an overpair on a paired board.
