From my position in the SB(Middle stage of the tournament), i know i should have folded my hand but since my other opponents in the late mid position and CO called the big blind, i called too in order to just see the flop. From the flop, i made a good hand already. Honestly, I decided to shove all-in but suddenly disconnected from the game..--it was check.
When i came back, opp on the BB went all-in and the others call,...I was confused and can't decide..but i have 777

I shove all-in(suicide). Luckily won the showdown

Any comment or suggestion would be appreciated

Yeah I would have completed aswell in the small blind. Its 400 chips into a pot of over 3 and a half thousand. Once I've hit the flop as hard as you did I would find it very difficult to fold. Its really scary when the big stack shoves but I personally would have committed. Good luck on the tables.

Hi optimus8778!

With J7s from the SB, I get two limps in front of me. Especially if the BB is passive (likely would not raise), I'm going to complete here and see the flop.

I flop trips and I absolutely need to make a value bet here (I cannot check, as there are possible cards in the deck that can beat me... so I need to price these out). Bets post-flop need to be sized based on the size of the pot, number of opps and board texture. With 3 opps in the hand, I need to bet 2906. If I bet less and an opp outdraws me, it's my own fault that I lose the hand.

When the other opp shoves and gets two calls, I'm going to re-shove here to try to isolate the first player. If they have 22 or 27, so be it.. I'm not folding.

The key here though, is to make a standard lead value bet on the flop and not to check.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.
