      Here is another hand I just played and I made an equally poor choice , again your opinion on the line to take would be greatly appreciated.

      Pacific, $0.02/$0.04 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 9 Players
      Poker Tools Powered By Holdem Manager - The Ultimate Poker Software Suite.

      UTG+1: $3.52 (88 bb)
      UTG+2: $5.13 (128.3 bb)
      MP1: $4 (100 bb)
      MP2: $4.32 (108 bb)
      Hero (MP3): $5.71 (142.8 bb)
      CO: $2.47 (61.8 bb)
      BTN: $5.96 (149 bb)
      SB: $1.19 (29.7 bb)
      BB: $5.07 (126.8 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with 3 3
      UTG+1 calls $0.04, 3 folds, Hero raises to $0.12, CO folds, BTN calls $0.12, SB folds, BB calls $0.08, UTG+1 folds

      Flop: ($0.42) 3 A Q (3 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.40, 2 folds

      $0.42 pot ($0.02 rake)
      Final Board: 3 A Q
      Hero mucked 3 3 and won $0.40 ($0.28 net)
      BTN mucked and lost (-$0.12 net)
      BB mucked and lost (-$0.12 net)

      I was afraid that the player behind me would check and I felt that a half pot bet was too small and likely to have the same affect and give the correct pot odds to call. I still had outs to a FH, so was slow play the line to take here? I would have preferred a check raise but as mentioned before I felt the player on the button would check behind the flop

      Hey Rich552,

      Vs EP limp it can be ok to limp behind small pockets. It depends on raisers stats and the stats of those still to act behind you.

      Multiway on the flop, betting immediately for value is the best option. Big sizing works too. Well played imo.

      yeah I would have limped had I suspected he was being tricky and limped hoping for a raise, however I had been observing his play and his open limping range under the gun was pretty wide I guess he had nothing to call with and protection was needed. Still a hand won is better than a hand lost. Thanks for the reply.
