      vpip/pfr/3bet/af (hands)

      UTG+2: $1.44 (72 bb) 25/13/0/2 (8)
      BTN: $0.39 (19.5 bb)
      Hero (MP3): $2.29 (114.5 bb)
      BB: $2.21 (110.5 bb)
      MP1: $1.80 (90 bb) 39/6/0/4 (18)
      CO: $1.26 (63 bb)
      SB: $1.79 (89.5 bb)
      MP2: $0.90 (45 bb) 8/8/3.9/10 (150)
      UTG+1: $2.88 (144 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with 8 8
      UTG+1 folds, UTG+2 calls $0.02, MP1 calls $0.02, MP2 raises to $0.10, 5 folds, UTG+2 calls $0.08, MP1 calls $0.08

      I think I might have missed an opportunity here.
      I know there is not really enough hands, but...

      I folded primarily because of how tight the raiser is.
      A second consideration is that he has a short stack.
      If he had not raised this I would have.

      Should I have called? If I do, perhaps some others in the hand will also come in, increasing my payoff if I hit.
      However, If I do call, I could get squeezed. Then what?

      they are all so passive. And i don't care about tightness of raiser, tight = good in this case. I call to set mine, so many fishes who will pay you off big time if you hit set vs top pair.

      Hello VorpalF2F,

      While you have so many fishy type of opponents behind you I don't mind if you even Call there. We definitely will get paid when we do hit and at the same time they hit some kind of TP/pair.

      Usually when opponent is tight then it means he is very likely willing to pay off you if we do hit our set, so it's only good. :)

      Best Regards.
