      IPoker, $0.01/$0.02 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 7 Players
      vpip/pfr/3Bet/af (hands) wtsd/w$sd

      CO: $2.36 (118 bb)
      BTN: $3 (150 bb)
      SB: $1.27 (63.5 bb) 27/4/3/1.6 (374) 29/43
      BB: $4.29 (214.5 bb) 23/8/0/2.4 (88) 35/29
      MP1: $2 (100 bb)
      Hero (MP2): $2 (100 bb)
      MP3: $1.67 (83.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with 8 8
      MP1 folds, Hero raises to $0.08, 3 folds, SB calls $0.07, BB calls $0.06

      I have a tight image. I quite often get a chorus of folds whenever I raise. So I raise pretty much all pocket pairs if I'm first in MP1 and later. That assumes these guys are paying attention.
      Also, since they mostly only limp or call when they do enter pots, if I'm going to get any money when I do hit, I have to start getting the $ in early.


      Flop: ($0.24) Q T 8 (3 players)
      SB bets $0.06, BB raises to $0.21, Hero raises to $1.92 and is all-in, SB folds, BB calls $1.71

      Bet Size?
      I shoved because to be quite honest, I could not see what else to do.
      Raise to 3x previous raise, and I'm at 1/3 stack, so I figure why not?
      If I get called there are a lot of cards I don't want to see, so I'd like to take it down now if possible



      Turn: ($4.14) 7 (2 players, 1 is all-in)
      River: ($4.14) A (2 players, 1 is all-in)

      Results:$4.14 pot ($0.27 rake)
      Final Board: Q T 8 7 A
      SB mucked and lost (-$0.14 net)
      BB showed K Q and lost (-$2 net)
      Hero mucked 8 8 and won $3.87 ($1.87 net)

      Hello VorpalF2F,

      Still raise it with normal amount on the flop, don't shove it directly. You will give them difficult time to continue. :) Though we are of course going broke.

      Best Regards.
