      Hero mucked 8 8 and lost (-$0.43 net)

      Limper's stats: VP/PFR/AF/hands 33/6/2.0/19
      Cold caller's stats: VP/PFR/AFhands 21/8/2.0/41

      Standard? I would have gone broke preflop against the limper if there were no other callers.

      One question though, if in this very situation the limper pushed do we fold because there is still 1 player behind us?

      Hello Avatars91,

      Seems to be fine and I doubt that I would play it much differently. We can't even be sure that he is laying his Jx down here while it may be in his calling range or as well even Ax.

      One question though, if in this very situation the limper pushed do we fold because there is still 1 player behind us?

      Then would be pretty close, we might at some point even have to consider folding since we can't really Call and let other people to join in. Our 88 will be really weak then.

      Best Regards.
