      Raise to $3 preflop.

      As played, just bet $3-$3,5 and fold.

      Hi Michailewic,

      I raised 3.5 bb pre-flop. What you telling is to raise 6x the BB ? do you think is the best for these limits ?

      I bet 4BB + 1BB per limper + 1BB since I am blind (and someone else than blind entered the pot), i.e. 6BB. You have bigger fold equity. You can use bet in the amount of 3,5BB + 1BB per limper +1BB for OOP, but at NL50, still, I recommend to use 4BB, not 3,5BB, since you have better fold equity. When playing NL100, 4BB and 3,5BB may have similar fold equity. NL50 is still very fishy.

      I think you played it fine, middlestacks tend to shove on that flop any pair, so it is hard to bet/fold getting that good odds.

      But now, we are not heads-up against middle stack so I would be more carefull.

      Agree, but you get there too good odds, around 3,5:1, which makes it rather call than fold, because a lot of times they would shove with any pair or Ax hands
