      IPoker, $0.01/$0.02 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 8 Players

      MP2: $2.38 (119 bb)
      MP3: $0.70 (35 bb)
      Hero (CO): $2 (100 bb)
      BTN: $1.21 (60.5 bb)
      SB: $2 (100 bb)
      BB: $2.29 (114.5 bb)
      UTG+2: $2 (100 bb)
      MP1: $1.75 (87.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with T A
      UTG+2 calls $0.02, MP1 calls $0.02, MP2 calls $0.02, MP3 folds, Hero raises to $0.14, 5 folds, MP2 calls $0.12

      Flop: ($0.35) J 8 A (2 players)
      MP2 checks, Hero bets $0.22, MP2 raises to $0.52, Hero raises to $1.86 and is all-in

      Preflop: I think the hand is OK to raise 3 limpers from CO.
      Flop: Remaining opp is 20/0. Vs his raise I'm thinking, could I just call and let him try to bluff me off my hand as I think I'm still in front? Anyway I decided to shove firstly because I have so many outs, and secondly because he could maybe call with worse A or worse FD.

      Would it be OK to play the hand this way vs someone like 16/13 as well?

      Hi Oly,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: I think that versus a fish is fine with the hand we have.

      However, versus a 16/13, what do you expect them to raise the flop with? What's our equity versus that?

      As a side note, when you leave a reply, don't forget to hit the advise judge to take another look button.

      I don't see many hands that he could limp/call, but maybe lower pockets and low suited connectors because 3 limpers were already before him, so he could raise me with 88, and we are not good, but would he raise me with T :club: 9 :club: or 7 :club: 6 :club: or 6 :club: 5 :club: If he can raise me with those hands then we're even 60:40 favourite.

      Assuming that he would limp preflop then you are correct. You can also add A8s to his range (probably just 2 combos for A8s). J8s is also a possibility but that's pretty much it.
