      I've basically convinced myself that my play here was bad, but I'm not sure how I should've played it. I think I maximised against draws and did fairly well against pairs, but he's probably more than minraising his pairs preflop and any jacks I'm likely to see here are beating mine. Folding didn't seem to be an option with $50 effective stacks.

      CO's aggression factor is wrong, it's actually a bit over 4. Please fix grab'em!

      Hi howard182!

      Since you are up against two players you do not want to see another :spade: coming up on the turn (except from the 9 :spade:) . For this reason I would either bet or check/raise here on the flop.
      Like you played it I would bet the turn and push all-in against a raise from the small stack.

      Other thoughts?

      Good luck at the tables!
