      here you have about 3$ dead money! your stack is 10$ - you get incredible odds to play this hand, you can shove it all in directly. Very good spot to do this and most likely you will get calls from worse hands (e.h. A5s / 87s) that call due to good odds.

      I like the preflop push here =) But it's variance increasing and if you're tight you may just take the freeplay.

      At flop I just fold to that donkbet because of the guys behind me. Can't be sure of being ahead with less than 2pair.

      +1

      Perfect chance to push preflop.
