      Was it correct for me to push at this point???

      The raise of 2x BB made me think that they are trying to limp in.

      Pushing is fine despite the mini-raise. Its going to be close to half your stack anyway if you treat them as limpers. Plus I think those players are going to call regardless.

      You have to treat minraises as 2 limpers and every caller of the minraise also as 2 limpers.

      In your hand this comes like if there were 7 limpers, which means you should bet 4BB + 7BB = 11BB, this is more than half of your stack and you are out of position on the flop, so it's an easy push preflop. Nh.

      hello bordzter,

      Remove the results in future sample hands, thank you :)

      Reraising a minraise to 3x his bet + 1bb for every 'minraise caller & limper (UTG2)' makes $0.6 + $0.3 = $0.9

      Since $0.9/$1.9 is close to 50%, I prefer the direct push here :)

      So well played and keep on going like this!
