why are we calling this flop bet?
325 for a pot of 775. 2:1 doesn't seem like enough here. Plus you have the PF-limper behind you. I fold the flop.

I guess it's possible to argue a push depending on the reads, but I probably fold it anyway.

I push the flop.

Push or fold. I've been folding this more often lately now that I realize my FE against a top pair is faily low.

I was strongly considering pushing the flop and folding. I don't think folding is so bad here personally, but wtf do I know.

I'm torn between all three but I think best in order would be pushing, calling, folding, or maybe pushing, folding, calling.

I think calling on the flop is terrible. I fold most of the time, but pushing is good too. I just dont like calling without odds when its a big part of my stack.

Calling on the flop seems quite bad to me. The only reason I'd do it is if I'm first to act on the turn and can push (thinking I have more FE doing so than just going allin on the flop).

If you think you're in good shape on the flop, push.

push or fold to that flop bet. given the not-that-scary board and the fact that the SB led w/ the betting, this becomes very read dependent IMHO. I usually fold this.

Yea, I agree...calling sucked...
