      Was it correct in this situation to push all-in.
      From the preflop play, I could never have asumed he had a 7 and he didn't raise the minbet on the flop so I kind of ruled out a queen as well.

      The minbet was an accident btw. He was thinking a while and I was about to click "bet pot" when he suddenly checked and the "bet pot" checkbox changed into the "bet ($0.10)" button :D
      Bet pot was all-in in this case.

      I think all-in on flop was the right decision. There's no way you can think he has a 7. If he has a Q, that's bad luck.

      You´re pot committed. The only hand thats beats you right now is a Q or a 7 in his hand. But he often will also call with any other pair when he puts your on Overcards. With your minbet you allow him to stay in the hand very cheap and hit one of his outs.

      So either push on the flop or give up your hand. On boards like these I would always push, since I often get called by weaker hands or my opponents fold their hand, what is good as well.
