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

      SB ($2.75)
      BB ($6.35)
      UTG ($6.50)
      UTG+1 ($15.90)
      MP1 ($7.45)
      Hero ($1.95)
      CO ($10)
      Button ($6.90)

      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with K:club: , K:spade: . CO posts a blind of $0.10.
      [color:#666666]2 folds[/color], MP1 calls $0.10, [color:#CC3333]Hero raises to $0.6[/color], [color:#666666]4 folds[/color], MP1 calls $0.50.

      Flop: ($1.45) 9:spade: , 2:club: , 5:heart: [color:#0000FF](2 players)[/color]
      MP1 checks, [color:#CC3333]Hero bets $1.35 (All-In)[/color], MP1 folds.

      Final Pot: $2.80

      I figured that since my stack was slightly less than the pot, it was an easy all-in...but would it have been better to bet 1/2 the pot and try to squeeze a bit more out of him? By the way, this was the first and only hand that I played at this table after about 45 minutes of getting dealt junk...I'm sure I had an insanely tight table image and was surprised that I got any calls at all on my preflop bet.

      Thanks,

      Nice hand! You played it correctly. A 1/2 potsize bet doesnt make sense here because you are pot committed anyway and such a bet looks very suspicious.

      Good luck at the tables!

      Great...Thanks! I need to try to not second-guess my decisions...the action seemed right when I made it, but after the fact I couldn't help but wonder if I could've made more.

      Thanks for the input,
