      I'm not quite sure I should have proceeded this aggressively after such a flop. Perhaps just a small raise? The idea of the all-in was to make them pay a lot for trying to draw against me. Did I make a mistake?

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

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

      Preflop: Hero is UTG1 with K, K.
      Hero raises to $0.40, 5 folds, BU calls $0.40, SB calls $0.35, BB folds.

      Flop: ($1.3) 8, 5, 6 (3 players)

      Final Pot: $4.2.

      Results follow:

      SB shows a straight, eight high(7d 7s).
      Hero shows a pair of kings(Ks Kc).

      SB wins with a straight, eight high(7d 7s).

      *Also, if I made a smaller raise and the turn showed a 4 (or a spade) what should I do?

      you should bet about 2/3 pot for this flop. Which means ~$0.9.

      Since 0.9 is more than half of your stack, shoving is correct here.

      Well played.

      I like it Avatars91!

      Elhh82 is right about the betsizing and the majority of the fish on 10NL will call you here with a straightdraw or a flushdraw. Which means that you are still ahead 60%++ of the time!

      And you have the K so a redraw to the 2nd nut flushdraw is possible if they have for example Q:sT and a spade comes on the Turn

      Best regards,
      Gerv

      Even if he has a monsterdraw like 79s or something your shove is still +ev I think.
