      This time i have some info :D sorry about the size, it's the first picture i upload :facepalm:



      We have 2 choices.(how i see it)
      1 c for set
      2 shove for value
      I think number 2 is better utg will fold most of the times,mp2 will squeeze with everything better then my 99,CO i put him on SC and small PP.
      How would you play that hand?

      Thanks :spade:

      Hello Aleksandar,

      Generally (and mathematically) shoving here is way more +EV than trying to hit your set by setmining. Thing is with so many players is that you will have most equity when hitting your set but since that doesn't happen often + people still have <40% equity , your EV is lower than shoving it in directly

      The first guy (UTG) has decent VPIP//PFR to be superduper profitable


      Nice hand if you shoved!
