      Preflop: Hero is CO with J:spade: , A:club: .

      River: ($10.35) 5:heart: [color:#0000FF](2 players, 1 all-in)[/color]

      Final Pot: $10.35

      I'm not sure how else to play this. I'm pretty sure check/fold is too weak. I'm pot committed on the turn, so no reason not to push, right? Is there any way to get away from this hand? Should I have just pushed the flop?
