      Full Tilt Poker
      No Limit Holdem Ring game
      Blinds: $0.10/$0.25
      9 players

      Stack sizes:
      UTG: $11.40
      UTG+1: $37.40
      MP1: $5

      SB: $7
      Utahmar: $5

      Pre-flop: (9 players) Utahmar is BB with A K
      UTG calls $0.25 (pot was $0.35), UTG+1 calls $0.25 (pot was $0.6), 5 folds, SB calls $0.15 (pot was $0.85), Utahmar raises all-in $5, 3 folds.
      Uncalled bets: $4.75 returned to Utahmar.

      Final pot: $1

      There were different opinions on this one. I think normal 1.5$, than push any flop better on 1 caller ?

      well, given 2 UTG callers it`s ok i guess. I prefer having 4 limpers to push pre-flop, but I think both plays are ok

      Its 50:50 for me. You explained it yourself very well. So both plays are correct. But you do not have to push any flop with a normal raise and one caller. On a 7 8 9 maybe 2 suited board, I wouldn´t contibet, since they often limp/called a Pocket Pair and will not fold.
