      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Known players:
      MP3 = ($4.48)
      CO = ($3.70)
      BU = ($3.70)
      SB = ($23.19)
      BB = ($12.67)
      UTG1 = ($4.26)
      UTG2(Hero) = ($2.90)
      MP1 = ($2.50)
      MP2 = ($4.14)

      Preflop: Hero is UTG2 with K, A.
      UTG1 raises to $0.30, Hero raises to $0.90, 7 folds, UTG1 calls $0.60.

      Flop: ($1.95) 5, T, 3 (2 players)
      UTG1 checks, Hero bets $2.00(All-In), UTG1 calls $2.00.

      Turn: ($5.95) J (2 players)


      River: ($5.95) 3 (2 players)


      Final Pot: $5.95.

      --------------------------------------------

      My question, obviously, come the flop I had nothing. But the pot was $1.95 and I only had $2 left. I was carrying out a bluff (as UTG showed weakness) but it was 60% of my funds so I went all-in. Was this the right course of action, or should I have just folded?

      I think I would check behind flop cause his range of calling 3bet is full of pocket pairs. Here contibetting is clearly ev-, according to me.

      I would not invest money postflop on this kind of situation.

      I see you're point - I have never really thought hard enough about the fact he called my raise, just that we are in the flop and I have chance to bluff. Perhaps I need to start taking these things into consideration, but his check made me think it was a sign he had nothing, and would almost certainly fold.

      Could you explain why?

      I would reraise a bit bigger like $1 preflop and jam any Flop

      Depending on suits because it matter is if you have A:cK and the flop is T:h5:h3

      Why not reraise all-in preflop? At least that's what the chart says.

      I wrote a big reponse to explain my point but my laptop scratched so...I'm a bit lazy to do it again.
      I would just say that your contibet is actually making fold hands you are beating, I mean Air, and that one single pair can't even think about folding on this spot (odds). Play with equilator, look at your tracker [AK tribet flop low cards cbet].

      Why a contibet, so a shove flop here, would be more ev+ than a check behind ?
