      This flop was so dry I decided to call MP1's bet, with 99 the only hand I'm scared of.

      When BTN min-raises and MP1 re-raises, I just thought "screw it, the stacks are going in now", especially with the BTN being a passive player (88/0 in 26 hands).

      Should I have just called again? BTN probably had an overpair or 9x, maybe even 78 (less likely)....

      EDIT - forgot spoiler...:D

      Preflop: I would've isolate preflop.
      Flop: Rather raise it yourself, so many player already checked so I think we could assume their giving up the hand since it's a multiway-pot. Not sure about the raise size, it doesn't need to be that big since there's still some players behind that might calls.

      Cheers.

      I usually raise a small PP preflop against 1 or 2 limpers, but against 3 I thought it's a good set-mining situation IP.

      Yeah, I almost always raise the flop with a set, but it's such a dry board. My first plan was to raise the turn.

      When playing against 2 different stack sizes (100bb and 265bb in this hand), I do wonder about my raise size here. Interested to see what the coach says about the sizing.

      imo
      pre: ok call low pp
      flop: ok u call on dry board as u want to stay weaker hands in play
      then u got raised and then imo play for stacks is optimal as u always want to play for stacks when u hit set on such flop.
      if someone had 99 lucky him

      Hello philhellmutt,

      Most likely I'd just raise it right on the flop and protect my hand. There are still some draws from we need to protect. :)

      Best Regards.
