      - $0.05 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 5 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

      BB: $1.11
      UTG: $3.90
      CO: $6.50
      Hero (BTN): $4.89
      BB: $2.00

      BB posts BB $0.05

      Pre Flop: ($0.05) Hero has K:spade: J:heart:

      BB calls $0.05, UTG calls $0.05, CO calls $0.05, Hero raises to $0.35, fold, BB calls $0.30, fold, fold

      Flop: ($0.85, 2 players) A:diamond: 7:heart: 6:spade:
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.85, BB calls $0.76 and is all-in

      Turn: ($2.37, 2 players) T:diamond:

      River: ($2.37, 2 players) A:heart:

      I lose a lot of money with stupid attacking limpers. I think this is my leak. I try to much attack with marginal hand. Now I will change this play and I wont attack limpers with hand like this if there are more than 1.
      I think that if there is one limper this play is obvious... but if there are more than one I should fold a hand like this... what do u think?

      BB calls $0.05? Sounds kinda weird, his BB, he shouldn't call?
      That said, your pre flop bet is $0.05 too big :P , bet 4 BB's + 1 for each limper, BB doesn't count as a limper so there's 2 limpers, you raise to $0.30, not that it matters that much :X
      If you do it plenty of times, that's a lot of $0.05's though ...

      Just check/fold this flop. A lot of people like playing with A's and you don't really have any draws if someone does have an A.
      I wouldn't cbet here often.
      Your cbet is too large too, bet 3/4 pot, not pot.

      It may not seem important, but over 1000's of hands those $0.05 become $0.5, $5, $50, ...

      BB calls $0.05, UTG calls $0.05, CO calls $0.05, Hero raises to $0.35, fold, BB calls $0.30, fold, fold

      BB isn't a call, his in the blinds? Or am I missing something?
      UTG = 1
      CO = 2

      Where's the 3rd? =)


      Edit: Meh forget it, looks like the hand converter screwed something up ...

      it's mistake of PT3... it was only one blind... big blind... and this guy after BB calls so PT3 read this like BB and first BB read like SB... so it was 3 limpers

      your edit is perfect explanation

      Hello BGawli,

      Preflop: Basically I just don't like to isolate fish-small stacks and as well not only one of them. Rather just fold.
      Postflop: Not much you can make fold anyways. Rather just Check/Fold. Most of the hands you win I mean make fold you likely will win as well with just Checking.

      Best regards.
