      Hey. The rule in basic MSS that we shouldn't fold an overpair doesn't apply here, does it? :f_biggrin: I feel like that minraise doesn't show much strenght. Should I find a fold? I'm not familiar with an unknown NL25 player yet. Thanks

      hi there,


      facing limpers you could raise bigger, something like 1.5-1.75 is fine too. they are usually fish and if they were going to call i think 1.25 is no different from 1.75.

      flop - the check raise could mean many things. it would be helpful if you have reads on your opponent here.

      1. how does he play 2 overcards? check call? check raise?
      2. how does he play sets on dry and wet boards?
      3. how does he play flush draws or OESD?

      answering these questions could give you an impression of his hand strength there.

      as played he could have many flush draws in his range, together with sets, 55 66 88, once in a while some slowplayed overpairs 99-AA, 2 pairs and pair + draw like 67

      against flush draws you are 50-50, against sets you are dead and against overpairs (rarely) you are sometimes ahead and usually behind. the only thing you beat is pair + draw, which is a very small part of his range.

      however you have the correct odds to continue.

      i think this is close between a fold and a shove, with that shoving may be correct and even if wrong not a big mistake

      limp/call is a play which Villain can do with Pocketpairs very often. So a set is possible. Overpair I don't think. Also Toppair isn't very often in his range.
      I think against unknown you can Fold here, but if you think he can bluff or raises FDraws you can push.
