      Should I really cbet here? because the only hand that will call me is an Ax or a pocket pair. I mean, if he raises, I push, because I am committed like hell...
      But is cbet the correct move?

      Hello Stefu,

      Best way to play this one pre-flop is going all-in.

      A rule of thumb: When you see 3+ limpers in front of you, go all-in instead of raising

      As played, yes you are committed to any flop so that's why I like the immediate shove from the SB/BB

      Best regards,
      Gerv

      Yes
      If you raise with 99 for $0.8 while you leave $1.2 behind ($2=20bb beginning stack), you even have to push on K A J when facing 1 opponent.

      Basically you give them 3 free cards so let them pay for it and call your all-in instead ;)
