      Is it correct to go all-in as a c-bet, when all-in means 2/3's the pot?

      I think the MSS article says this is correct against exactly one opponent. I was against two, so I guess I was wrong for this reason?

      Would it have been the correct move if there was only one opponet?

      I guess all the action before the flop shows that they have something they don't want to fold, even to c-bet? So, does this mean it is a bad call, or is it justified with pot odds and a back door flush draw with two overcards?

      Here is the hand:

      Hello MoneyDearest,

      I would be reraising bigger preflop. I mostly do 3x when there is only the raiser & you. If there is a caller, I mostly add 1 in the multiplication so 4times. That means I reraise to 60cents here

      With that said, assuming a HU pot. We will have a pot of approx $1.25 while your stack is around a dollar. That way you can comfortably shove

      As played. We are 3way with a trash hand. That said we have to give up here because we are often way behind here

      Best regards,
      Gerv
