      Let's see what to do with 22 or 33?
      a) two limpers before me: fold
      b) 1 raise & 1 call: call!

      Why? I think in case b) I am probably in a worse situation, because:
      - my opponents hold better hands
      - I payed double price for my possible set, and I don't think that the action before me guaranties doubled winning

      So, what's the reason behind the call in case b) ?

      Good point, never thought about that. Actually I think I turbomuck 22-66 in raise+call situations as I don't see them as good hands.

      Looking forward to the answer to this.

      good question ^^
      the only thing i can imagine is that the chances to get a nice payout when you hit your set are better in b) because your opponent seem to have a better hand like an overpair or something...

      nevertheless it doesn´tmake much sence to me :D

      I'll forward it but I think frzl is correct.

      I think that is spot on it happened to me today. Called the raise like outlined ended up 4 bet but once i was in i was in lol. Anyway flopped a set no 4 bet flop, 4 bet turn and 1 bet river (no flush or straight possible) lucky for me though AQ2 was the flop so much action!

      This should be the correct answer. :)
