      is that the correct pre-flop raise amount? I have been re-raising minraisers at 4x minraise +1x minraise per limper. Is that correct play? I have also added +1x minraise if I am also SB or BB. Judges?

      firstly, pay closer attention to the number of players at the table. It's ideal if you're against 9 different oponents. With 7 players sss starts to become less or even not profitable at all.

      Here I'm definitely noting out what he had because minraise/call utg is rather a weird line and you should save this information for further use. On the flop it's very hard to fold (which our strategy would suggest) and I'd probably push as well - if not for value, than for information, so I can play better against this guy next time.

      Note him out, that's for sure.
