      Blinds: $0.25/$0.50
      6 players

      Stack sizes:
      UTG: $29
      UTG+1: $13.80
      CO: $23.97
      Hero: $55
      SB: $21.48
      BB: $40.10

      Pre-flop: (6 players) Hero is Button with 8:diamond: 8:heart:
      UTG folds, [color:#cc0000]UTG+1 raises to $1.75[/color], CO calls, Hero calls, SB calls, BB folds.

      Flop: 7:heart: 4:diamond: 2:club: ($7.5, 4 players)
      SB checks, [color:#cc0000]UTG+1 bets $7.5[/color], CO folds, [color:#cc0000]Hero raises to $15[/color], SB folds, [color:#cc0000]UTG+1 calls all-in $4.55[/color].

      When I look back at this hand it seems to me that I could have just folded my hand because UTG+1 is betting the pot into 4 opponents with a short enough stack that he's completely commited. The only hands I'm really beating are cbets,straight draws and 7x hands. Was this a time to just fold my small overpair?
