      I think its ok if there's been no raisers in front of you, + only if there's at least 3 limpers and your in the CO/BTN/SB. If there has been a raise and callers as in your case then i personally wouldn't play low-mid pp's.

      fold preflop you don't have the odds to call a raise with 20BB and play for set value , as played you have to push flop since theres a flush draw, plus every two face cards have gutshots and 5 people on the pot.

      Here is an interesting situation, well worth playing IMO.
      First I calculate the pot odds. I need 5:1 with 3 limper/gimp callers, 4.5:1 with 4 limpers and 4:1 with 5. (my numbers are rough estimations, since when you flop a set in a multi-pot you have very good implied odds) I try to stick to the call 20 rule, but at the lower limit you often double or triple through when you do hit, so I think this rule is offset on NL25-10 (purely my observations from grinding away, the PP I play for set value seem to generate more income then they lose)
      If I decide to play my line is call preflop, if I hit a set I bet potsize or open shove depending on potsize, but never less than full pot. If I hit overpair to the board with TT or JJ I push all-in. If I blank I c/f until I fold or improve, and I dont play draws unless I somehow??? manage to hit a monster draw.
      Again, only at NL25-10, thus far

      you are getting 1:4 odds maybe the bb calls because he is getting 1:6.5

      12% of the times you are going to flop a set , you are folding 88% of the times.

      0: -0,57 + 0.12*X
      0,57 = 0,12*X

      so you need to win $4.75 (with rake) to break even, that means the pot has to be $4.9875, ok $5 dollars.

      you need to get extra $1.75 ($1.25 if BB calls) on the pot the 3 guys everytime you get the set to break even .... and then is when i become a donk again and i'm waiting for gerv to get this right , i have no idea how to continue since sometimes you are going to flop a set and lose ( to a flush, straight, better set or whatever )

      by the call 20 rule, you have to call 0,6 so the effective stacks have to be $12 ... you have $4 left and 3 people calling so it exactly $12 but i'm don't know if this can be added.

      you dont consider that a set does not always win!
