      Playing SSS and sitting in the small blind, there are no raises, but there are a few limpers. With what types of hands does one pay the other half of the big blind to see the flop? Is it smarter just to fold sub-par hands?

      Thank You.

      Hey cyzo,

      any pp with 2+ limpers
      suited broadway connectors/one gappers 2+
      suited connectors with 3+

      Hope it helped )

      good luck,

      While we're on the subject of SB in SSS...

      what hands would you be pushing allin, with say, 3+ limpers?

      According to SHC, you can/should raise from here with 88, 77, AJ and KQ (aswell as the better hands obv.) but I've found that on NL10 you get a lot of callers sometimes and these hands can often be useless against multiple callers on a lot of flops.

      Is it better to push with these hands pre-flop, against 3+ limpers for fold equity?

      Thanks in advance.

      yep, you are right
      its better to push. however, watch the limpers)
      UTG limpers will be tighter, so pushing KQ and 77 in some spots will be very marginal
