      I just won a big hand, but I got button so I decided to stay untill I had big blind.

      0,05/0,10 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Texas Grabem 1.9 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is BU with K:diamond: , A:diamond:
      UTG+1 calls $0,10, UTG+2 folds, MP1 calls $0,10, 2 folds, CO raises to $0,60, Hero raises to $1,80, 3 folds, MP1 calls $1,70, CO folds.

      Flop: ($4,45) J:diamond: , 2:heart: , 7:heart: (2 players)
      MP1 checks, Hero bets $1,52 (All-In), MP1 folds.

      Final Pot: $5,97

      Was the raise on the flop smart and the right amount?

      I knew that I had to go allin on the flop if somebody called, made me think a bit, but I decided to go for it. This time it paid off, but should I do the same next time?

      If you decide to play AK if pot has been raised, then you did everything right. You have backdoor flush draw+2 over cards and the most important MP1 checked, which means, you might be ahead here. Nice push. I like to play more conservative and fold AK at that spot, because you have already 25+BB and can leave safely at the table.

      Hi Yoghi!

      As Kaitz20 already mentioned: You should leave the table if you have more than 25 BB. Concerning the hand you played: Nice hand! :) I would play it the same. Heads-up you can easily have the best hand and even if not you still have two overcards and a backdoor flushdraw. The pot is too big to fold here.

      Good luck at the tables!

      I guess there is nothing to add for me on that hand, since everything to mention was already posted. So nice hand. :)
