      Yeah, I think it's alright to complete that hand. The odds are really good.
      You'll complete two pair in around 10% of the cases if I'm not wrong. Then there's also the chances for straights, trips and all that.
      Since the pot odds were at 10:1, not counting the implied odds.
      So, I think it's a perfectly fine call. =)

      1/10 odds so you could even limp with 97o+. (Value taken from a chart available in the german strategy section)

      When will these charts be available to out English community?
      I feel as though we are missing out on a lot.

      As for the hand.
      Pre-flop: yes with 1/10 odds your able to complete here.
      Flop: Just bet, you want to get your money in asap with a made hand (2 pair).
      pot bet would be good against 7 villains because board is draw heavy.

      I dont like the check on the flop, you could be giving a straightdraw or a flushdraw a free card.. just bet/raise it imo :)
