      It was the first hand in play,3 limped in in front of me,I knew that several of them will likely call my raise ,my raise should be big, my 88 is not very strong hand ,I need improvement on flop (probability to hit set when you have PP is 22.5:1 on turn,11:1 on river or 4,4% and 9%).So saving money I decided to limp in with others and see if I hit something.There`s no limp in in basic SSS,what should I do in this situation preflop(77-99 LP)? Big raise according to SSS rules,push or just limp in cheaply?Against loose aggressive big stacks who tend call every raise preflop,and compete with you till the bitter end (of course when I hit something ,I love them)? Thanks. :)
