      Pre-flop: (9 players) Hero is Button with 9 9
      UTG calls, UTG+1 folds, MP1 calls, MP2 calls, 2 folds, Hero raises to $0.7, 2 folds, UTG calls, MP1 calls, MP2 folds.

      Flop: 8 J 8 ($2.35, 3 players)
      UTG bets $0.1, MP1 calls, Hero raises all-in $1.3, UTG raises to $2.6, MP1 folds.
      Uncalled bets: $1.3 returned to UTG.

      Turn: 7 ($5.05, 1 player + 1 all-in - Main pot: $5.05)


      River: Q ($5.05, 1 player + 1 all-in - Main pot: $5.05)


      Results:
      Final pot: $5.05

      Pot is bigger than my stack. There is a pair on the flop and a over card.
      One of my opp donkbet 10c.

      Generally I make C-bet on the paired flop. In this case c-bet is all-in.

      Is it all right to push?

      I would be better to either limp preflop or push all-in directly.

      The reasons are:
      1. there are 4 opponents already in the pot = a lot of dead money
      2. If you make a normale raise you´re committed to the pot on nearly any board

      Reasons to limp:
      - You have position and have great implied Odds if you hit your set

      Resons to push:
      - You often have the best hand and you get often called by worse hands, like 44-88 or hands you have a coinflip against (AT, JT+, KT+)

      With the 99 I would push here most of the time. With 77 and 88 you can also only limp and play for Setvalue.

      first I was a little bit confused about your proposal to limp but after reading your explanation fine :) .

      I would most of the time prefer to push (without reads) taking the dead money most of the times and often avoid hitting one of the limpers to hit on the flop. I personally think I'm not hitting often enough my set to generate more money than with my push.
