      Should I have slow played when I make the Quads?


      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Preflop: Hero is UTG2 with 8, 8.
      Hero calls $0.02, MP1 folds, MP2 calls $0.02, 3 folds, SB calls $0.01, BB checks.

      Flop: ($0.08) 2, Q, 8 (4 players)
      SB checks, BB checks, Hero bets $0.06, MP2 folds, SB calls $0.06, BB folds.

      Turn: ($0.2) 8 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.14, SB folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Hey AKM247,

      You really should fold this hand preflop. With MSS you should never openlimp from any position because this will only make you lose money longterm even though you sometimes hit a set or better, because you don't have a stack to get paid off enough when you hit, but have to fold every time there is a raise behind your limp before the flop. Try sticking to the articles some more.

      As played, postflop is well played. When you hit a monster it's hard to get paid off because when you have a monster it's hard for other players to have a good hand as well and if they don't, well they will be less likely to pay you off. However you still have to valuebet, just have to pray they've hit something good.

      Regards,

      Hey again,

      Ya - in this instance I was really hoping they hit flush on turn :(

      Thank you again for the feedback. tbh I was not following Hands chart for MSS but I am going to make a conicous effort to do this and really tighten up now and see how it goes.

      I will continue to post hands for as long as you are happy to keep reviewing them :)

      Grazie!
