      UTG: $0.93 (46.5 bb)
      MP: $0.97 (48.5 bb)
      CO: $1.30 (65 bb)
      BTN: $2 (100 bb)
      Hero (SB): $4.04 (202 bb)
      BB: $2.01 (100.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with 2 2
      UTG calls $0.02, MP calls $0.02, 2 folds, Hero completes, BB raises to $0.10, UTG calls $0.08, MP calls $0.08, Hero calls $0.08

      Flop: ($0.40) 2 7 6 (4 players)
      Hero bets $0.38, BB raises to $0.76, UTG raises to $0.83, MP folds, Hero calls $0.45, BB calls $0.07

      Turn: ($2.89) 9 (3 players)
      Hero bets $1.94, BB calls $1.08

      River: ($5.05) 4 (3 players)

      Results:
      $5.05 pot ($0.18 rake)
      Final Board: 2 7 6 9 4
      UTG mucked A A and lost (-$0.93 net)
      Hero showed 2 2 and won $4.87 ($2.86 net)
      BB mucked J J and lost (-$2.01 net)


      The title pretty much speaks for itself. I think that my call on the flop is a mistake, because I still won't be able to get out of the hand, and there are a lot turns that neither I nor BB want to see.

      So shove flop?

      TY

      Hi German,

      Preflop: Considering both UTG and MP are short I don't mind limping behind.

      Flop: I would go for a reraise on the flop here for value/protection. We don't want the board to get too wet and then we lose our value. There's no real reason to just call (and least none that I can think off).
