      i push this preflop, when there are 3 limpers and you are in the blinds u can push directly. as played nice hand.

      btw: hey judges... what u guys think this UTG1 have here? 441 hands, 7% vpip... should we fear his limp? i think no... but not sure.

      Hi dadude,

      fold to raise and call on the flop, very likely that utg1 has you beat i think you where just lucky with the backdoor straight. I definitly push this preflop, yes utg1 should fear you a little bit, he can limp big pockets so i would check 77 but with 99 you also beat 77-88 which is part of his calling range so i push directly preflop.

      Could you explain why I should open push this preflop. Should I be doing this with some hands? If so could you explain when. I don't remember ever reading about this in the articles, although I will check again.

      I don't think I ever do that, I always raise the 4bb+1 for each limper.

      you shall raise because 99 is a monster ^^

      and you shall push because after 3 limpers your raise would be huge anyways and you would push any flop with your cbet, so you can also push directly preflop :)

      No people with holdings as low as Q8s or as bad as 33 will call you , this is based on my experience :)

      Ok Sorry, last post just for clarification.

      So With any hand that you'd usually raise, if there is 3 or more limpers you insta push? or is there a set rule?

      Also what site do you have experience on gerv?

      I'm just curious as I've had a different experience between pokerroom, ipoker skins, and stars. Thanks :)

      Well 3+ limpers = instant push with <22bb stack is easy to clarify since if the case would be if you raise preflop and should push any flop heads-up then Push preflop

      On every site there are bad fishes but FYI Stars,Party,Everest,iPoker
