      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.1/$0.25 No-Limit Hold'em (7 handed)

      Known players:
      MP3:
      $5.00
      CO:
      $16.68
      BU(Hero):
      $4.30
      SB:
      $12.56
      BB:
      $4.85
      MP1:
      $5.67
      MP2:
      $6.50


      Had only 15 hands with villain, so I dont think its relevant but VPIP was like 23 and PFR: 10.

      Preflop: Hero is BU with J, A.
      MP1 calls $0.25, 3 folds, Hero raises to $1.25, 2 folds, MP1 calls $1.00.

      Flop: ($2.85) 5, 2, Q (2 players)
      MP1 checks, Hero bets $3.05(All-In), MP1 calls $3.05.

      Turn: ($8.95) Q (0 players)
      MP1 gets uncalled bet back.

      River: ($8.95) A (0 players)
      MP1 gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $5.9.

      Results follow:

      Hero shows two pairs, aces and queens(Jh Ah).
      MP1 shows two pairs, queens and nines(9h 9c).

      Hero wins with two pairs, aces and queens(Jh Ah).

      Did I have any other option? When the pot is 2.85 and my stack is 3.05???

      nice play... standard conti bet

      you could have also bet something like 1.5 on this dry flop, but i would have shoved as well.

      No I just shove here for Max FEQ + Pot Equity because if youb et 50% and he calls and you miss, you decrease both variables and thus your effective stack.

      Only way to counter the raise pre, shove postflop move is rebuy to 20bb :)
