      Preflop: Hero is SB with A:club: , Q:heart:
      UTG folds, UTG1 calls $0.20, 2 folds, MP2 calls $0.20, 2 folds, BU calls $0.20, Hero raises to $1.40, 2 folds, MP2 calls $1.20, BU folds.

      Flop: ($3.40) 5:club: , T:heart: , 9:spade: (2 players)
      Hero bets $2.40 (All-In), MP2 calls $2.40.

      Turn: ($8.20) 2:spade:

      Final Pot: $8.20

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows high card ace with queen kicker (Ac Qh)
      MP2 shows a pair of threes (3c 3h)

      MP2 wins with a pair of threes (3c 3h)

      I think the cbet is pretty mandatory, im wondering with 3 limpers already, should i just instantly push preflop? Gerv was talking about something like this, about same thing but with 99, but i didnt really understand in which circumstances I would and which I wouldn't.

      I was thinking here, especially since I'm sb, i know im going push the flop anyways. So maybe if I had a monster, AA's or KK's maybe I wouldn't to try to get action, but with something like AQ or a smaller pocket pair would it be better to push preflop? Hope to get some clarification from gerv here, thanks

      Hi DaDude,

      It's really easy:

      [1] When one sees 3+ limpers in front and [2] Hero has a <23BB stack: shove immediately preflop

      Now you virtually give 3 free cards away and when you dont hit, you are mostly behind with 6 outs at most

      Best regards,
