      Is it ok to push the flop here or should I first raise to ~15$ and push later on to get maximum value out of weaker hands?? (I think it's ok to push immediately here btw :) )

      mm.. would fold it preflop, CO could try to isolate if you just call.

      On flop.. Well, if you push you will only get called by AK/KK/AA from the likely handranges (don't think KQ will call) because it's megadry board. I would just call and see what happens, you can easily make a valuepush on turn or river and if someone has KQ or KJ they are more likely to stay in the hand aswell and AK/KK/AA are not going anywhere no matter when you push.

      btw, on drawy board I like to push on flop - often people think I'm drawing something and call with all kind of crap.

      but anyway, you got the max profit out of the hand this way too, so can't really judge :p nh

      Hi Zeffke!

      I already commented on your preflop play in your blog. Concerning the flop play: I would like a call here. The board is dry and there is not much danger for your set. If CO has AK or KQ he probably folds to another raise but would call if you just call.

      Good luck at the tables!
