      On Full Tilt, im still not sure that folding to cbet rr is ok. Many many times, they check raise, reraise cbet. Im dont like to check/fold after preflop agression, but have very bad feelings on these folds also.

      I'm with you on this one 100%. Most of the time a cbet will always get called or raised on FT. And with a board like yours you always feel like you have the best hand right? :) Of course theres the chance your up against a pocket pair but I think it's more likely that your highcarding.

      Uhh, correct play for the SSS though

      From MP2 we fold AJ as a shortstack, to avoid situations like these. ;)

      Well, from CO he could call you with small ace suited or small to medium PP. Of course he could call you with something like suited broadway connectors, but if I don`t have stats on the opponent I automatically assume that I am drawing against him in most of the cases. And in this case your draw is obviously weak. Your stack is $5.20 which is half of your stack. I don`t know for sure at what point you are oficially pot committed, but I guess it somewhat betwe2n half and 2/3 of stack. You are getting 2.4 to 1 pot odds. Even if you think your overcard outs are clear (considering the possibility of Ax its not always true) you still not getting the right odds.
      Given your pot odds I would call with AK or AQ on the board where I also have gutshot (+preferably backdoor flush) and think there is a high possibility that my outs for overcards are good.

      Full Tilt only offers 9 players tables, and there was 1 sit out, to make it 8, so i was moved 1 position up on the chart.
