I would call. MP2 raised PF so he could have just an overpair. button is short stacked so he could have anything. A lower set is possible. Even if button has a made flush you still have the side pot to play for. And of course you still have the FH draw if you are behind. And this pot is too big with too much of your stack in it to fold here.

I'm willing to go broke here in a 22. I put MP2 on an overpair to the board.

Well, it appears that after your flop bet of almost half of your remained stack, you pretty much commited yourself to the pot. MP2 is likely to push this hand with any High Diamond, which in this case would have him at 9 outs. Button should not be worried about since he is so shortstack, even if he has the flush and lasts, more than likely your sidepot with MP2 will bring in a win. The fact that Button pushed, representing a flush or a high diamond, is good news for you, less diamonds in the deck. Considering that are only left with 480 chips for a shot at a nearly 2k pot, makes this an easy call IMO. but then again, I'm not too familiar with PP 800 chipstack SNG's, so I could be wrong with my thoughts on the importance of an early chiplead.

Actually, I should have put more thought into what question to ask. I posted this while playing, should have waited. I should have asked for suggestions on what to do when I was first to act. As I played it, I decided with my 330 raise I was committed to the pot.

I would have check-raised all-in, and I would not fold here.
