      Answer in grey below:

      Easy bet/all-in. With over-pair we have made hand, and opponents are scared of the flop just as we are.

      Edit: CiRith is right. direct all-in, as we have small stack in relation to pot :D

      I read Mathematics of Poker tand there it was stated that a monsterdraw should get in his money as soon as possible and a made hand should avoid it. But I don't think that check/call could be correct here so I vote for allin because our stack is already very small.

      I would go all-in, since we have an over pair on a scary board. our stack is relatively low. and since flush draws will not get the odds they need, there is quite some fold equity as well.

      check. not so big stack to fight for it, but it's sooooooo drawy :)
      If it was one opponent - check/all-in

      P.S.oops... I was thinking that all people have 25$ :) )
      If i have $5 - all-in.

      Made hand, stack is less than 1.5 times the pot, so all-in

      How do you like this hand? Didn't feel comfortable on the turn, but had to do it according the SSS.

      Easy all in. We have to protect the over pair. If we bet we are committed anyway.

      The stacks are a bit unclear. It says UTG $25 and Hero is UTG but then also Hero $5. UTG ($25) should be UTG+1? Also the order could be correct, hero is not after SB? I thought hero had $25 as well because of this.

      More than 75% of you were correct. The solution is: c

      We push directly. The reason for this is protection. We have to assume that at least one opponent has a high .We cannot put our opponents on a completed flush or a made straight because these hands can be excluded after the preflop action.
      Since we can assume that a player with a straight draw cannot call our bet, we have to assume that we are playing against a flushdraw.
      The odds that he completes his flush until the river are 1:3. Since we are betting more than potsize he is not getting the potodds to call and would have to fold.
