      Hi,

      In this hand I tried a semi blind steal with a marginal hand. It becomes top pair on the flop. How would you play this hand?

      hi
      i would actualy check behind with so many limpers and take a cheap flop .
      i would give up on the flop when this nity player minraises because most of the time you are crushed .
