      When you sit in the blinds and there are 3 limpers before you the best thing for you to do is just to push preflop.

      As played, you face only one opponent and you have less than potsized stack left, so you have to push when you act first. The board is scary for the opponent and you will see him fold his hand quite often imo.

      These monoboard situations happens so it is much easier for you to push 20bb with any SHC worthy hand if you are on the SB/BB. if you are on the BTn/CO it is a different story

      Best regards,
