      MP wins 54.34 BB


      Is preflop ok? I need to pay 2bb to play suited cards 4way, but OOP. This time it just couses the problem.

      Hey,

      When you get multiway you have to realise your pair is worth a lot less.. I would try to pot control to the max and get super cheap showdown on the flop. If you cannot go cheaply to showdown, you are likely behind so just fold.

      I dislike the preflop call, esp 50bb deep since your pair is always bad and creates reverse implied odds. I'd rather 3bet or fold. Why 50bb though? :)

      I tried other rooms which are not speed poker, one of them was this one where you can buy in 50bb but if you go higher you keep it. The concenquence is that there are much less reggs :)

      Less regs sounds solid but 50bb stacks are awkward in NLHE imo. The smaller stack also means fish lose less on their mistakes but it's worth a try. Never played that myself, so can't really give an informed opinion. :)
