      0.05/0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.67 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is BB with J:club: , J:heart:
      UTG2 calls $0.10, MP1 calls $0.10, 3 folds, BU calls $0.10, SB calls $0.05, Hero raises to $2.00 (All-In), 4 folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $0.50

      - A standard bet here would be 4BB + 4BB for limpers = $0.80. Is it ok to just push immediately preflop to avoid tricky situations on ace/king high flops or am I losing value?

      when there are more then 3 limpers you can shove pf because you are going to be pot committed. nice hand, well played

      Hi Phil,

      I admire your thinking process and normally we would just shove preflop if we see 3+ limpers in front of us, it is an unwritten rule but more effective in my opinion.

      nice hand,
      Gerv
