      Should I always put my money in. There is no fold equity and I think that MP1 could made minraise small pocket pair.

      If you are 100% sure your opponent will not fold, then you are correct. No point in wasting money.

      But otherwise, if you had no info about opponent, you should c-bet about 2/3 of the pot (~$3.2).

      tactic states you should cont bet, so I would bet about $3 on the flop, then check/fold if he shows action

      You might have 7 Outs here, 6 for your Overcards and 1 for your backdoor Straightdraw. Here their is no such thing as a C-Bet, since you are pot committed when you C-Bet. A normal C-Bet would be around $3 here which would put you all-in anyway. So on the Flop its either push all-in when you give yourself fold equity against your opponent or check behind and hit your Turn or give up your hand when your opponent shows aggression and you mist the turn as well.
