      Hi,

      Hero is SB. With 3 limpers and getting pot odds 9 to 1. May Hero play for set value in this situation? Thanks :s_cool:

      Hi,

      Playing for set-value OOP is really hard. In unraised pots it will be hard to extract value if you hit.

      It's better to play for set value in CO+BU.

      Option in SB+BB is to raise AI with 3+ limpers. This will be high variance and very marginal with 22 though...

      +1, however with 22 I think raising will be a bit over playing it OOP and folding is a shame because of the already made pot equity. You only need to put $0.05 in pot of $0.45 to see a flop, I think in this case completing is really the best move.

      Well played afterward you could have gone potsize on flop leaving you with $1.45 and a pot of $1.50 but that is just details :) .

      I will reverse the question.
      What makes you think you can setmine with PPs on your limit and higher limits?


      As you can see from my evaluations; I let you do the thinking more instead of just saying the answer. Doesn't have any connection with me being lazy or not willing to give the answer.

      I just want you to understand it

      Merry Christmas Gerv, :s_biggrin:

      With 5 players seen the flop. As I know, 1 player hits a pair on Flop 33%. So, with 5 players on the Flop, I think someone should make a pair. Besides, at micro limit, player may limp/raise with monster preflop. So, with the pot odds 9 to 1, I think setmine may be +ev. Thanks

      "PPs" is stands for poker players? I hope I guess it right.


      PP = pocket pair ;)

      Yes someone hits a pair 33% of the time. That may be bottom, middle and toppair so you assume that
      1) You hit a set and
      2) People hit a pair that

      3) you get a double up

      But you forget:
      A) People will sometimes fold TPNK on later streets, middle & bottompair you only get 1 street of value
      B) Against a set people still have <20% equity so you lose some money as well

      In the end I think I rather shove preflop as setmining is soo marginal because you need to get his whole stack as soon as you hit otherwise it is just a waste of money

      Hi Gerv,

      So, do you mean that you will fold pocket 2 preflop? Thanks :)

      I think I said in my previous post that I rather shove than limp because of my aggro style

      This is a fold or shove spot
