      Oh, it's a great example why I don't like limping pocket pairs. You called raise anyway, so why we can't raise first? Result is the same, but we have initative, we are making moves and he has to think what to do, everything is easier.

      As played: Nothing to change, call dry flop, raise turn for value and bet river. Well played

      If he raises to 3BB from UTG, he'll often be 3bet and then he won't have the odds to call for a set, unless they're both big stacks. Better to limp and call a raise, and just check/fold if you miss... That's how I play small PPs anyways.

      Edit: I don't quite see the point in posting the hand without any questions, standard play by the book IMO. Wp.

      But when you limp/call you are looking only for a set. When you are raising, you gets opportunity to cbet and win pot without hitting set. It's not nl25, you won't get light 3bets too often. Anyway, it's a close decision and that's why I'm folding 22-66 from utg :D

      Hello BjornArild,

      Preflop: From UTG I would more often advice to fold the hand. Although that's true that limping ain't wrong on those limits. People don't adjust anyways vs your limp.

      As played
      Postflop: If you assume he is that bad enough not to be able to fold overpairs or TP there then sure we could pick this line. But vs more reasonable opponents instead of Check/Raising the turn we might Check/Raise it right on the flop.

      Best Regards.
