      Preflop: Hero is SB with T:heart: , T:spade:
      6 folds, Hero raises to $0.75, BB calls $0.50.

      Was it ok to push here? I had a pair and a flush draw and chances for some backdoor things as well ... good or bad? i had no particular reads or impressions about the villain

      i tend to think it was a bad move from my part

      bet bigger on draw heavy flop, I would bet $1.25 then fold to any resistance - your flushdraw isnt worth anything

      Hey exorcism,

      I would c-bet 1$ because the board is so draw heavy, otherwise nice hand! No need to think you made a bad move...

      You need only 34.7% equity after the c-bet(it would've been even less if you c-bet 1$) and here are some results from equilator...

      Equity Win Tie Loss Hand
      Player 1: 37,818% 37,768% 0,101% 62,131% TsTh
      Player 2: 62,182% 62,131% 0,101% 37,768% QT+, 88, 44, Asxx, 5s6s, 6s7s

      And this time you saw villain bluff raising your c-bet which all makes your push even more profitable.
