      The main problem I have here is that its very likely I'm behind but I'm pretty much commited to the pot. SSS says fold right? When I'm in doubt it's what I do... and then post here of course.

      You did the right thing, at least I would've played exactly the same.

      You didn't hit the flop. A bet here is what you do to extract fold equity. With two oponents it's very low and you still have about $3, right? And invested only 1.75, right? So maybe it'd be better to save them for a cleaner spot :) .

      The best thing you can do here is to fold.

      This was my thinking, however if the pot was $6 on the flop, SSS says I would have to all in regardless right? Even though it's very likely I'm behind.

      nice hand

      when the pot is twice bigger, your pot odds are at least 3:1 -> you need only 25% equity, which you will often have, given our range of hands.
      not in this case though)
