      I don't know if I played it right. I think only better hands would call my bet on the flop.

      Since you are a Small Stack, its most likely that Pocket Pairs like 55-77 call you, an 8 or a Flushdraw (maybe with Overcards) would call you and very often also two overcards. So with your overpair your Push here was the right decision to make.

      Well played. :)
