      Hi Tim,

      I think, Ingol was saying that you hit the set approx. once every 8 times. So to complete the blind you need 7:1 odds, therefore you should complete when there were at least 2 limpers before you, if you take also implied odds into account. I hope I remember this correctly, don't want to mystify you there.

      The Flop/Turn/River play was correct.

      Hey Tim,

      I actually remember this rule of thum for pps: limp in from late position with 3+limpers behind.


      That is my suggestion. Here you haven't got enough pot odds and you'll lose money in the long run. About the river bet, I don't think there is much you can do over there. If nobody bet so far, they probably won't call you either. You can also try betting half pot to make a call easier, or hoping for a re-raise.

      in nl25 you are actually getting worse odds than on nl10 , nl50 and upwards. There you get 1:5 and is still quite short to actually do it, then you need implied odds and stuff.

      BUT since you have more than 40bb I like the limp there, it's just 1SB after all and you sure get implied odds for that call.

      completing after only 1 limper isn´t that fine, better if there are 2 infront of us...especially on nl25

      as played I´d bet the river a bit smaller, like 2/3 of potsize
