      Known players:

      0.05/0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (10 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.60 by

      Preflop: Hero is MP1 with 6:spade: , 6:diamond:
      UTG raises to $0.40, UTG+1 folds, UTG+2 calls $0.40, 5 folds, SB calls $0.35, BB calls $0.30.

      Flop: ($1.60) 5:club: , 9:club: , T:heart: (4 players)
      SB checks, BB checks, UTG checks, UTG+2 checks.

      Turn: ($1.60) 3:heart: (4 players)
      SB bets $0.70, 3 folds.

      Final Pot: $2.30

      I dont need comments on this hand, but I have some related questions:

      - Suppose UTG and UTG+2 had $5, would I be able to call20? Do two middle stacks add up to a large stack and allow me to call20?
      - What about three middle stacks?
      - What if Im fairly sure an $8-10 stack station will call behind me with a large stack? Can I call20 expecting him to call behind?

      thnx in advance

      it doesnt matter if their are 1 or 10 middle stacks in the hand because when you will go to the showdown you will go just with one of them most of the times and you will win just a 1/2 stack( it isnt profitable ) so dont call preflop
      is ok to call if the big stack calling behind you is a fish and its likely to stack in many situations
