      Flop: ($2.27, 3 players) 3:diamond: 7:club: 5:diamond:
      Hero bets $1.00, BTN raises to $3.08 and is all-in, Hero calls $2.08 and is all-in

      Turn: ($8.43, 3 players) J:diamond:

      River: ($8.43, 3 players) 5:club:

      Hero shows A:club: K:club: (One Pair, Fives)
      BB shows 7:spade: A:spade: (Two Pair, Sevens and Fives)
      BTN shows K:diamond: K:heart: (Two Pair, Kings and Fives)
      BTN wins $7.08
      BTN wins $0.93

      When BTN didnt 5bet me and just called, I put him on middle pocket (or up to JJ), AKs, AKo. On flop, I guess I thought he would fold his range if he saw me cbeting on a board like that. When he raised-allin, was I commited or should I have folded, saving $2 in my stack?

      Hello faronel,

      Preflop: Already 4betting is somewhat close here while we don't know the BTN. Since our line already invites only very strong hands to continue unless they are really loose. So I might even just Call here and reevaluate it on the flop.

      As played
      Postflop: No point to CB here, as I said his calling range will be very likely pretty strong here. Vs some tight opponents we might even see only strong PPs. So I'd Check/Fold or even if I would Bet then Bet/Fold.

      Best Regards.
