      Even 44 UTG is not the best to open, sometimes I vary the range and do open with all pairs.
      On such a multiway pot without any hit I would have to give up but here with top set and value hands like any pocket pair and Ax hands it is a really good situation. I did not really considered sets of 22 and 33.

      My bet size is so large becaise if there are any hands that will play along they will call it. Otherwise it is not worth to give a cheap draw for Ax hands or 6x, 5x hands.

      In this case against such a large checkraise Shoving is the best option to get max value.

      He had 22

      What is I would have a set of 22 or 33 and I would face such a checkraise?
      I guess that if my mind would be bright then making a fold would save a lot of money in long run?

      22 is tough and i may consider folding it vs a really passive opponent who can have straights and sets. Im never folding 33.

      i think you should open all PPs by default. Value of having a set is super high at low limits where people pay u off so often with top pair.
