      Hello again Oly,

      in this spot it's simple - shove it right away without raising before. See: you are going to raise $0.7 and you have only $0.85 left. No point in dividing such a small stack into two so just push directly.

      Good luck!

      SSS tells me to push if I raise more than half of my stack, and your experience tell you to push right away in this situation. Problem is I don't have your experience when I play :)
      So, can you give me some guidelines in what situations should I push even when the raise is not more than half of my stack, or I must gain enough experience to C it by myself?

      Oh, I think there are no strict rules, but I can tell you when I push myself.

      In position: with 2 limpers with a stack of less than 15BB,
      with 3 limpers up to 17 I think,
      with 4 and more nearly always and when my stack is so large it would be too risky (after double ups for example) I just don't play weaker hands, and stronger will prove worthy.

      Out of position: with 2 limpers everytime when my stack is 20BB and lower (!)
      with 3+ limpers - just like above.

      Of course there are other factors affecting my evalutaion on the limit I play - I mean, stats and notes. But that cannot really be brightly described. So I do not stick exactly to the rules above - I'm not even sure if they are right. Most of the times it's happening like: oh, ok, they're loose and from middle/late position, I'll push and they'll easily fold. And they do, so I'm happy ;) .

      I'll leave the thread for xylere to correct me and these estimated ranges.

      yeah, well
      I agree that its hard to provide the guidelines
      in general, i would push no matter what with 3+ limpers

      Generally, its better to push oop (since I raie 5+1x oop), because you are commited and have to push first in.

      so 2+ limpers with sligthly reduced stack (as 098799 proposed) seems fine to me

      But in general, post hands with specific situations, so we can discuss it
