      Hi Gerv,

      what to do here?

      I decided to shove here, because pot is too large anyway and I think that in this spot they mostly hit nothing and have overcards here at best. Of course sets are possible, but I dont expect large pairs given the preflop play. The fish will have variety of hands here. And the 17/10..i expect either set or overcard from him. Not too much AAs or KKs.


      Poker Stars, $0.02/$0.05 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 9 Players

      UTG+1: $8.45 (169 bb)
      UTG+2: $3.92 (78.4 bb) 58/0/0 after 40 hands

      MP2: $2 (40 bb)
      MP3: $5.02 (100.4 bb)
      CO: $6.15 (123 bb)

      Hero (SB): $2.02 (40.4 bb)
      BB: $5 (100 bb)


      Preflop: Hero is SB with 9 9
      UTG+1 folds, UTG+2 calls $0.05, 4 folds, BTN raises to $0.15, Hero raises to $0.52, BB folds, UTG+2 calls $0.47, BTN calls $0.37

      Flop: ($1.61) 8 5 4 (3 players)
      Hero bets $1.50 and is all-in, UTG+2 calls $1.50, BTN folds

      Turn: ($4.61) 8 (2 players, 1 is all-in)
      River: ($4.61) 2 (2 players, 1 is all-in)

      Results:
      $4.61 pot ($0.19 rake)

      UTG+2 showed 8 6 and won $4.42 ($2.40 net)

      Hey,

      well played imo. If BU just coldcalls preflop, he has something weak to 4bet but good enough to see flop. I wouldn't be worried about UTG's range.

      I think you can't do much besides shoving the Flop here. If they have small overpairs so be it but you can also get loose calls from overcards
