I guess not folding pre-flop was the first mistake here.

Maybe I'm missing out on something here, but isn't the amount (\$ or bb) we have behind us irrelevant, in the sense that it is the SPR and their/our ranges that makes us decide whether we call or fold?

Otherwise I can see the argument of drawing dead. Let us say we hold KKxx here instead, would that be a more of a snap-call (since we have greater odds to improve our hand)?

Thanks again :)

Thanks for replying! Why do you think a half-pot bet is the best here? I mean I'm thinking about what we want to achieve with it.

Thanks for the feedback!
I think I agree that pre-flop may be too loose, getting 3bet we will be dominated a lot. I guess you mean not the open this hand from EP, or folding to a 3bet?

But on the flop, can we ever fold this with the SPR we get, even with two players behind?

Best regards
