      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with A:club: , K:diamond: .
      [color:#666666]1 fold[/color], UTG+1 calls $0.25, [color:#666666]2 folds[/color], [color:#CC3333]Hero raises to $1.25[/color], [color:#666666]1 fold[/color], Button calls $1.25, [color:#666666]2 folds[/color], UTG+1 folds.

      Hmmm...I don't remember why I wanted to post this hand...maybe since I was OOP.

      Bet/fold seems nice.

      I can't see bet/fold being correct. Your cbet may be a bit larger, $2 say, then you would be all in anway, if your opponent raised, or even just called. No way to fold with only $2 left.

      If I calculated right then you´ll get 4,3:1 (pot 8.6$ and you have to call 2) and cards that could help you is 7 imo (6 overcards +1 for nut flush), so 47:7 or 6,7:1. According to the odds you should fold. So I think that my bet/fold theory should be fine. Did I make somewhere wrong conclusion?

      In my opinion you should`ve made higher cb (about $2). In case he raises - you fold holding trash hand.

      Hi Eclipt,

      I don't think it makes much sense to bet $2 and then fold for $1.75 into what would then be an $8.85 pot. I'd definitely be pot committed.

      In heads-up, if you were agerssor pre-flop, you have to c-bet - thats clear. The question is how much do you have to bet.
      You should fool your opponent, that you hit the flop. If you bet low, opponent will sense that something is wrong and he will call. Also, if you bet low, and he is on some kind of draw, you might give him odds to call.
      If he missed, he will fold, thinking he`s beaten. If he hit, you are behind and there is no reason to waste remaining stack on lost hand.

      I belive there is no such thing as being pot-commited in SSS.

      You bet 2/3 of the Pot, thats clear as well. ;)

      And of course you can be pot committed, when you would get the right odds to call with even 2 Overcards and maybe a backdoordraw.
