      Poker Room skin
      No Limit Holdem Ring game
      Blinds: $0.15/$0.30
      9 players

      Stack sizes:
      UTG: $11.24
      UTG+1: $14.39
      MP1: $29.62
      MP2: $59.97
      MP3: $7.33
      CO: $17.30
      Button: $38.87
      SB: $30
      Hero: $6

      Pre-flop: (9 players) Hero is BB with T:club: T:heart:
      UTG folds, UTG+1 calls, MP1 calls, 5 folds, 5 folds, [color:#cc0000]Hero raises to $2.1[/color], [color:#cc0000]UTG+1 raises all-in $14.09[/color], MP1 calls, Hero ?

      I don't have reads on players. I thought that at least one of the limpers was trapping, but according to SHC, when the ratio of your left stack and your raise is 2.5:1 you go all in with TT.

      I need your opinion: What do you do in this situation?

      You go all-in.

      But why do you raise to 7BB when there are only 2 limpers? Should be 6BB so $1.80 . As played you can push according to stack : raise ratio.

      Stack:raise ratio = 2:1

      Pot = $0.9 + $2.1 + $6 (UTG+1 overraises)

      You have to invest $3.9 in order to win the Pot
      30% equity you need at least

      So Versus any 2 Overcards you have an equity of 55/45 = CALL
      So Versus any overpair you have an equity of 18/82 = FOLD
      Against any cards that are under the T so 65s or 87s your have at least 75% equity = CALL

      Mean average in my opinion is (55x2)(18x1) divided by 3 = 42.66% mean equity.
      I do it times 2 versus any 2 overcards because there are simply more combo's.

      So in average you have 43% equity. But you only need 30% to make this call profitable.

      Concluded: You go all-in based on the Stack:raise ratio and the equity calculation.

      Hello abundance211,

      Good thing you noted out that utgAAlimper. You'll need that later.

      With two limpers and out of position you can push directly... Wonder how many times did I type this words ;) .

      This kin of limp-reraise is very weird. You may go suspicious and not call it) even though you get "good" odds) or call it just because you want to find out and are willing to invest money to know your oponent's strategy. The latter is ok, but with a short stack it's hard to exploit this later, there are just too many players and you will be quiting this table in no time anyway.
