      Stacks:
      UTG ReneBerg ($9.23)
      UTG+1 ISEMAG ($6.15)
      MP1 Djadai ($3.82)
      MP2 Lakotnik ($4.28)
      MP3 Sharkbait 300 ($2)
      CO Duque77132 ($8.77)
      BTN GeoDaSilva ($2.82)
      SB Hero ($2)
      BB AMO-NAPOLI ($2.93)

      Pre-Flop: ($0.07, 9 players) Hero is SB 4:heart: 4:diamond:
      ReneBerg calls $0.05, ISEMAG raises to $0.10, 3 folds, Duque77132 calls $0.10, 1 fold, Hero calls $0.08, 1 fold, ReneBerg calls $0.05

      Flop: 4:club: J:diamond: 10:diamond: ($0.45, 4 players)
      Hero checks, ReneBerg checks, ISEMAG checks, Duque77132 bets $0.40, Hero raises to $0.80, ReneBerg calls $0.80, ISEMAG folds, Duque77132 calls $0.40

      Turn: 6:diamond: ($2.85, 3 players)
      Hero goes all-in $1.10, ReneBerg calls $1.10, Duque77132 folds

      River: J:spade: ($5.05, 2 players, 1 all-in)

      Not sure about the preflop, but I tend to limp with pocket pairs if there are not that much opponents after me. Like here in the position of the SB.
      However it can happen on another table to have the same action and if the raise was 4BB I would probably fold.
      Flop - check /raise. With more than 1 opponents I thought someone for sure will bet. I don't like my min bet, but wanted to keep UTG in the hand as well.
      And push on the turn ... probably should have pushed on the flop, but on turn I have no choice.
      Pretty much like the previous hand I posted.

      Hi,

      pre-flop is close, but since ReneBerg will also call 95% aswell due to the odds I think it is fine.

      on the flop you can go two ways:
      1 donk 0.40/all-in. The board is drawy and if everyone checks behind it can get nasty on the turn.
      2 c/raise but then go all-in instead of a min-raise.

      T.

      Hey DestinationAnywhere,

      Calling preflop is fine, since your stack is 20 times bigger than what you have to call and you will probably find yourself in multiway pot where it's more likely to get some action when you hit your set. Although that's not very much the MSS spirit and folding is absolutely fine here as well.

      On the flop, I would definitely go for a donk here, because there's a fish between you and the original raiser and in such a multiway pot it's very likely the preflop aggressor will go for a check behind without a very strong hand.

      I agree with T. here, if you decide to go for a check/raise you should check/push all-in.

      Regards,
