Comments on how i played the hand be it positive or negative comments please.

P.S. my reason for calling him was because i felt that he wasn't drawing to a back door flush and the 2 probably wouldn't help him thats why
i called his all in. Is that proper reasoning too? Would any of you have called or folded ?

hmm...is it just me or do your post-turn and post-river bets look too small?

no one does a river checkraise all in bluff at these limits.

backdoor draws are definnitely in his range, as well as twopairs or better.

the river call was pretty bad with your single pair, he could rarely be bluffing on that spot.
His river CR shove looks more towards runner runner flush or maybe 2 tugs

Your sizing of bets on each street is also something to look into

I would probably bet 1/2~3/4 pot size on the flop
followed by about 1/2 on the turn

River I would check-call a moderate bet, to induce bluff from air hands and pay less when 2nd best.

Okay.
Thanks for all the comments.
Anyway i did not raise higher was because he might have hit a straight ?
Anyway i would take note in future.
But i do feel that its pretty loose calls from him.
Anyone agrees?

its the habit of 10NL players to almost call any cbet with any two cards.

Btw, you've got a very weird stack size.

you're either called by big starting hands if you all in preflop OR win the $0.15 + you have no post flop plays too.

btw, i thought shortstacking fullring was bad, isnt shortstacking 6max worse?

But it makes things easier when you have to shove in right ?
And i read the article on Emotional Bankroll and decided to take that approach.
Haha.
