      BB: 418.25 BB
      Hero (UTG): 205.15 BB
      MP: 39.45 BB
      CO: 131.55 BB
      BTN: 110.4 BB
      SB: 102.1 BB

      SB posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has 9:spade: 9:heart:

      Hero raises to 3 BB, fold, CO calls 3 BB, fold, fold, BB calls 2 BB

      Flop: (9.5 BB, 3 players) J:diamond: K:spade: 7:heart:
      BB bets 1 BB, Hero calls 1 BB, CO calls 1 BB

      Turn: (12.5 BB, 3 players) Q:diamond:
      BB bets 1 BB, Hero calls 1 BB, CO calls 1 BB

      River: (15.5 BB, 3 players) 5:heart:
      BB bets 1 BB, Hero raises to 15 BB, fold, fold

      Hero shows 9:spade: 9:heart: (One Pair, Nines)
      Hero wins 16.65 BB

      CO 60 hands VP 24
      bb 4 hands.

      What is the best way against limpers in 3 way? I couldnt raise flop because CO could hit it. Is it better fold? Because I have 2 outs, which could even complete straight and if I call limp CO might often bluff or value raise.

      Turn also I cant raise because I called limp flop. River I kind of try to fold his Jx, but I think it is a bad try, if he thinks a bit, I dont represent anything but 55. He would probably bet larger with kx at least river.

      Probably spewy from me.

      Hi mlatasrb,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: Given that we are caught inbetween two guys and have a weaker bluffcatcher I'd prefer to raise/fold the flop rather than call. HU I can see as calling more. And by raising you put pressure on CO who may even fold hands that are better than ours like Jx or weak Kx (or his equity in the flop).

      And if you get called by CO we can simply give up, no biggie.

      As played i don't like the river raise. I doubt he ever folds anything better other than maybe a really weak Jx or TT.
