      Sooner or later, as i experience, if you play a limit for a while, and they getting to know that you cbet 80+%, they will call you with any pair on the flop.

      I would check/fold first one against 3 opponents...
      second one is ok.

      I agree with you generally if I'm OOP. But checking both into me I think I have to play. A 2/3 pot raise would leave me $0,35/0,40 so I think I can go All-In here. It's quite aggressive, but still I'm feeling well with this move.

      well, 2/3 pot bet is definately not possible. The thing is, since you got called pre-flop, you are likely against Ax or pocket pair and your equity against those is around 25%, therefore you need 3:1 pot odds and you are getting about 2.2:1. situation can get even more ugly if someone holds AQ or smthing... The main point is there are a lot of possible assumptions that can lead to -EV play, therefore I prefer to fold it...(against 2 opps) However, I usually push here when I have AK
