      Cake Poker, $0.02/$0.04 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 9 Players

      Hero (BTN): $4 (100 bb)
      SB: $5.24 (131 bb)
      BB: $3.71 (92.8 bb)
      UTG+1: $4.34 (108.5 bb)
      UTG+2: $4 (100 bb)
      MP1: $3.96 (99 bb)
      MP2: $1.48 (37 bb)
      MP3: $7.14 (178.5 bb)
      CO: $4.97 (124.2 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with 8 9
      UTG+2 posts BB OOP, UTG+1 calls $0.04, UTG+2 checks, 4 folds, Hero calls $0.04, SB folds, BB checks

      Flop: ($0.18) 9 8 6 (4 players)
      BB bets $0.18, UTG+1 calls $0.18, UTG+2 folds, Hero raises to $0.68, BB raises to $2.40, UTG+1 raises to $4.30 and is all-in, Hero calls $3.28 and is all-in, BB calls $1.27

      Preflop: I only steal with this hand, but since it's multyway and cheap and I have position I decided to overlimp.

      Flop: I'm raising to protect from OESDs, double gutshots, pair+draw and all other stuff they can have in limped pot, but after 3bet and shove I see myself behind vs at least one if not both opps. Thing is, one of them have me covered and the other one has ~90BBs, and I allready invested something so I think I need less then 30% eqity to call. Can I fold top 2 pair here?

      Opps are 15/10 (UTG+1) and 18/7 (BB).

      Hello Oly0909,

      Yeah, that's the problem. :( People Call with those hands and even think that they are ahead in those spots when everyone starts to raise. What do you hope to see there? There are already a lot of sets and straights even possible. Not even worth to go broke here.

      My advice, don't limp such hands preflop if it's hard to fold postflop.

      Best Regards.
