      Preflop: Hero is BU with K:club: , K:heart: . MP3 posts a blind of $0.10.
      3 folds, MP3 checks, CO calls $0.10, Hero raises to $0.60, 3 folds, CO calls $0.50.

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows a pair of kings (Kc Kh)
      CO shows a pair of eights (8s Kd)

      Hero wins with a pair of kings (Kc Kh)


      Now my stack is 45.5xBB and I will leave when the BB gets to me.
      Question #1 same game
      The next hand I am on the CO with 2 limpers and A9o. With SSS mission over, I fold. Did I make the correct move? The flop came K 9 9, but I think that is rare, and pot odds pre-flop are 4:1 assuming the SB calls. Only 4th hand at table I had no reads for implieds

      Question #2 same game
      In MP I am dealt AQo with UTG limp. I fold. Correct move?

      Question #3 same game
      I am UTG and looking at 88. Do I limp here? I am risking 1BB and I think I have fairly good implied odds for a set, and after watching only one round of hands it seems there are a few fish in the tank...

      Thanks for any advice.

      Hand #1 is played correctly
      With hand #2 you shouldn't be on the table with $3.00, you leave with $2.50 or re-buy with under $1.50. Assuming you were just waiting for blinds, you played the hand right.

      Question #1: A9o is an easy fold no matter what position you are- or what your stack is.

      Question #2: In middle position AQ is a raise no matter how many limpers. If anyone has raised before you- you fold. If you were early position you would fold no matter what.

      Question #3: You don't call 88 unless there are 3 limpers behind you. You raise with 88 if noone has raised before you and you are in late position.

      first of all, both hands above are well played

      your questions:

      1. A9o is an EASY fold
      2. i would raise it but with a more than doubled stack its not a shame to fold if you feel insecure
      3: limping sucks! raise or fold, in this spot fold :)
