      I've got less than 1/2 the pot on the flop, so it's a push, right?

      Button ($7.30)
      SB ($16.20)
      BB ($42.90)

      River: ($20.25) 5:heart: [color:#0000FF](2 players, 1 all-in)[/color]

      Final Pot: $20.25

      CO raised my c-bet, but I'm only being asked to call $3.25 into a $17.75 pot, so I figured I couldn't fold.

      Thanks,

      against 3 limpers, I would just complete hand1 and play for set value. Hand2 hits your villain so often, and you don't have many outs, so actually I would play check/fold here. Maybe it's bit weak but the flop is almost worst possible.

      1) Against most players just completing here is fine. A standard-sized raise is too often going to lead to difficult post-flop play being OOP with a bloated pot. Open-pushing is alright here too.

      2)OOP with a board that could have hit villain in so many ways I agree with Degnic and probably c/f.

      On hand 1 I was actually ahead of both players when I pushed the flop. They were both chasing the flush...which they of course both hit on the turn :(

      Also, I find that most of the time a standard raise here is enough to get it heads up...this was just an exceptionally loose table with two players calling because "my cards are suited! I can't fold these!" One was Kxs the other was Jxs...the x was a low rag in both cases :rolleyes:

      Hi Kknight!

      I think that you played Hand 1 correctly. There is a lot of dead money in the pot and you often have the best hand preflop after so many players limped. For this reason a raise is the right play here imo. Push on an A-high flop is correct too because you cannot fold here anymore with your stacksize and you can easily have hit the ace. Nice hand!

      In hand 2 I agree with degnic and Nunki.

      Good luck at the tables!

      @Puschkin, degnic & Nunki

      What is the deciding factor here? Or is it a combination of all factors (OOP, very coordinated flop.) The reason I ask is that I thought SSS heads up is ALWAYS a c-bet. Also, conceivable calling hands would include low pocket pairs, which would likely fold on a board like this, correct?

      Thanks,

      Hand 1.)
      Honestly I open just complete here, when I´m not sure that my chance that everybody fold it over 60% and only play for set Value.
      Put like played, its the right Move to go All-In on the Flop, only a Flushdraw and Pocket 66 or 22 should call here. An Ace should be on the flop anyway. ;)

      Hand 2.)
      Tough the CO Poster can hold any 2 here. Often they just hit an 8, 9 or the Jack and Push since they believe you´re on 2 Overcards. Honestly I go broke here as well. If he has a Pair, I still have 6 Outs + 2.5 Outs for my Backdoor Straight and Flushdraw. So I after discounting maybe 7 Outs and I need 6:1 to call and I get 6.2:1, since I only have to call $3.25 to win $20.25.

      But its not a mistake to fold here.
