      Is raise preflop bad play here? Open it is a raise, no doubt, but with one limper? I always think about it, and I dont really know what to do.
      On flop I would go broke as well, I dont think villain has KK/TT, because of his limp preflop, and I can see him overbetting with KT, or Kx

      Hi,

      Preflop: you should raise against one limper 4bb+1bb per limper.You can overlimp with low pp when few limpers present.By raising against 1 limper first he can fold preflop,second he can fold to your cbet (when is ok to cbet),third you want bigger pot if u hit set.
      Flop:on micros I'm go broke with set because he can often show tpK ,KT ( he is affraid of fd),sometimes they can play fd like that,only set of TT can be you,set of KK rarely because even fish knows KK is ok to raise.If you are very affraid of sets you can analyze his range using combos:1T on the board so 3 combos of TT (sets) left,same 3 combos KK( sets),if we assume that he overbets with tpgk(AK,KQ,KJ) or 2 pair(KT)-KT (3Kx3T=9KT combos,12AK combos,12KQ combos,12KJcombos), total we have 51 combos.What part of sets? 6 sets combos/total combos=0.11 or 11%,tpgk part 45/51=0.88 or 88%.Even if you discount some tpgk hands,they still are majority of hands.So be brave and go broke.
      best regards,

      Hello Greedyfly,

      Preflop: Actually since it's NL2, I don't even mind to just Call here, since we often even don't get that much fold equity, otherwise raising is definitely an option.
      Flop: I would definitely go broke here, he could also write wrong the number, like wanted to write 0,07, instead wrote 0,7. :) Nice hand!

      Best regards.
