      We want to do, but at the same time we want to have a position to play it profitable. Playing OOP against 2 opp is definitely not a good idea. Even if we hit a pair we'll have to fold it on almost any board. I'm not a big fan of this small suited connectors on micro limits.

      On river I would think of potting it or if you have some read they are calling station even overbetting it.

      Hello Alleen86,

      What I sometimes do on the river is that I shove. Why? Since if they are loose enough they might even Call with 5x and it wont change anyways much. If we at least once get called by a loose opponent we already earning a lot more than making such a bet size. :)

      Best Regards.
