      Blinds: $0.10/$0.25
      9 players

      Stack sizes:
      UTG: $12.85
      UTG+1: $28.50
      MP1: $22.90
      MP2: $37.65
      MP3: $46.45
      CO: $50.40
      Button: $24
      Hero: $18.45
      BB: $17.40

      Pre-flop: (9 players) Hero is SB with K K
      3 folds, MP2 raises to $0.5, MP3 calls, 2 folds, Hero raises to $2, BB calls, MP2 folds, MP3 calls.

      Flop: 5 7 Q ($6.5, 3 players)
      Hero bets $4.25, BB calls, MP3 calls.

      Turn: 9 ($19.25, 3 players)
      Hero is all-in $12.2, 2 folds.
      Uncalled bets: $12.2 returned to Hero.

      Results:
      Final pot: $19.25

      Really don't know about this hand.

      Both MP3 and BB cold call preflop. Since I missed to reload X( I have $16.5 left in a $6 pot, so if I bet potsize I am committed, right?
      I was a tiny little worried of BB having AA or QQ, so how do I play the flop?
      - all in will only be called by better hands, maybe AQ will call but that is marginal I think
      - bet-fold 3/4 of the pot?
      or different?

      As played I don't like the turn card but a flush seems not too likely. Since my stack is relatively small, is the all in ok? If someone bets I have to call anyway, right?

      thx

      You are commited and its ok to shove the turn. However, one may also consider a check with the intention to call a bet. Aggressive opponents use such turns to bluff. However, I wanna know my opponent before doing such a move.

      I am not sure about the flop play, because a well sized bet almost commits me already on the flop ...

      When called by 1 opponent the pot on the turn will be my stacksize, if called by both it is bigger than my stack. So unless an Ace comes, I will have to push on the turn or call a bet.

      Is that correct?

      Yes. The stack sizes aren't good in this hand: any bet will commit you but you have to bet. However, I'd bet pot on the flop (didn't recognize it first) to clearly commit me.
