      Well, for SSS, this is a trash hand and with more than 1 villain we should c/f. So, why c.bet here?

      for the number of reasons:

      1) your stack:pot ratio. with 1 caller you need to win only in 30% of the time.

      2) On this flop you have a good chance of beeing ahead, since the better hands (AA, KK, AK) would likely reraise pre-flop. And against two pairs we have enough equity: 30% against KQ and 33% against KJ, because of our gutshot and Ace outs.

      3) We have some fold equity and maybe even quite underestimated. UTG looks very weak. I do not think there is a high chance that he limped/called monster pre-flop, so I would put him on pocket pair. In this case our FE is quite good)

      against the range 22-TT, AQs-ATs, KQs, AQo-ATo, KQo we have 71% equity. equity is so high because I included all the pocket pairs (22-TT), but in my opinion it is quite reasonable, given the pre-flop action. anyway, push here is clearly +EV

      well, you can`t say much without having stats. But with the average coldcalling range from MP on this limit he probably did hit a piece of the flop. So, if we assume we have a strong Fold equity against UTG (I explained why in the previous post), then this is the player who is going to call us) But again, as i wrote in the previous post, even if he hit two pairs, we still have enough equity. I don`t think it is very likely that he has JJ, QQ or KK. So we are in a playable shape)
