      Hi Dethredic!

      According to the SHC one should raise with 4x + 1bb per limper you see

      As you can see you have 3 limpers so you should make it a total of 7bb. In this case you should raise to 14cents instead of just 6cents(=3bb)

      We have a good hand and should get as much money as we ''can'' on every street

      On the Flop the call is OK as long as you know what to do on the Turn/River. If you dont know it is much easier to just fold Flop

      As played is the River a fold to his overbet . I know nothing about suits ( ) hence I cannot judge if you have a flushdraw (= more % winning chance = equity )

      Best regards,
      Gerv

      Also I find that if I raise more than 0.06 or 0.08 people fold every time unless they have a high pair.

      I find this hard to be true. If it were true, you should raise 0.10 a lot :f_biggrin:

      Just raise 4x + 1x per limper and you will be fine.
      If they fold, they proly have crap and wouldnt pay you off anyway. So you only risk to be sucked out if you raise smaller.

      That's flawed logic

      One should raise higher because YOU want to earn more money

      Raising because you want to lure OTHERS in is not for value but merely backfiring yourself because you just allow them to suck out on you


      Just like Tampaloeres81 said :)

      Hi you will find a lot of people calling you with AT+, any pp, suited connectors, and TBH at NL2 any 2 suited cards or even in many case ATC

      May Hero push all in instead of raise to 7bb preflop?

      Hi,

      If hero is 19xbb or less yes. But here hero is 60xbb deep (not really SSS). So shoving would be too much ;)

      So, if Hero has 20bb, Hero may goes all in instead of raises to 7 bb. Am I right? :s_biggrin:
