      depends on your postflop play... i think you can complete it but it´s no mistake to fold it right away. flop is good... turn is ugly but i think you have to go broke here

      That`s the problem with completing from SB. You definately have odds to do it, but have to play it oop. Basically, when you flop a strong hand you will have less chance to get paid and it is also getting tougher to play mediocre hands like this one.

      I usually check/push in those spots. We definately have the best hand (on average) and by check/pushing I avoid those ugly situations on the turn. The drawback of such play is that I have to give up my hand most of the time if the flop gets checked.
