      I'd push PF with 3 limpers.
      As played I`d fold after his limp-raise because to often opponents are having Aces, Kings.

      Hi Phull,

      As your BB I should just raise it up to 70c (4bb+3)

      If your stack is below 20BB you can clearly push PF with 3 limpers but as your stack is 23BB, I would just see the flop with 7BB.

      As MP2 minRRaise you you have to look at your stack:raise ratio.

      Your stack is after your 8bb raise {now} $1.5 so
      1.5:0.8
      =
      1.875:1
      =
      A push according to the chart.
      I am referring to this Chart.

      So In my opinion, you played well.

      Hi, first thank you guys for your opinions.

      I have this doubt: if I'm BB and, for example, two limpers just call the minimum bet, should I add 5BB to complete my raise or I need to add 6BB (since the first BB was the forced bet)?

      best regards!

      Well, as already stated, it's a push for me preflop with 3 limpers even though your stack is a bit enlarged.

      About your additional question: the 4+1bb refers to whole amount of preflop raise, so you basically need to add 5 more to your blind. But it's also playable with 5+1 hence adding 6.
