      I would have pushed it preflop since there are 3 limpers and you are going to be out of position.

      on the flop, there's nothing else you can do than check fold.

      I have pushed, don't you see it ? and i didn't get reraised, so i can't push more preflop...

      Hero raises to $0,70

      Hello Paperwings,

      As being suggested by other players, 3+ limpers = an instant All-in if you are SB/BB (out of position on the Flop).

      As played, very good that you saved your money post-flop because thats the optimal method to invest your money in these situations :)

      Merry Christmas,
      Gerv
