      If you cbet $1 here and got called the pot would sum up to $3.45. Your stack would've been at $0.75, so you are perfectly pot commited. Still, a bet of $0.75 does not create much fold equity, so it's pretty useless. Better to go all-in on the flop to enlarge your fe here.

      Ok.

      Sometimes on such board we have the problem, that the UTG limp/call is a pocket pair, that will call us on such a board nearly every time, which means we do not have so much fold equity and can consider to check behind here and hope to improve.
