      Hello lukezo,

      Yep, mainly you do overplay your mid-PPs like 88-TT. I'd bet the flop like $0,45. But as played rather Bet/Fold it in such a multiway pot. I did choose the Bet/Fold line because your pot size bet is pretty strong but still he decides to raise it which makes me think that he doesn't have that many 7x in his range rather it's the 3x.

      One good advice, if you really do overplay such PPs then rather just Call with them for set value than raise them up. The problem is that you will see most of the time an overcard on flop and even if not than you can still face a very strong hand.

      Best regards.

      I agree with your answer, but don't think that limping 88-TT is a good line at micro stakes. It's that even if we have an overpair on the board, it is still pretty connected and all sort of small hands come along and we have a hard time facing a raise on any street.

      Although I agree I shouldn't overplay them.

      Then mainly try to find your leaks with overplaying such pairs and fix them. :) I do usually as well rather raise there, preflop of course. :D
