      I think limping is out of question for SSS strategy.Also postflop,i think it might be one of these situations u could attempt a c/r since there absolutely no draws,he couldnt hit cause he would raise u with AK/KQ preflop,so u can check raise or give him 1 freecard and bet turn.

      But really dont limp at situations like these,limping for set value can be done with 2-3 previous limpers i think,never on a blind battle.

      Cheers

      Thanks for the answer. Limping there makes no sense at all.

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is UTG+1 with J :heart: J :spade:
      UTG calls $0.10, Hero raises to $0.45, 7 folds, UTG calls $0.35

      Flop: ($1.05) A :club: 8 :club: 7 :heart: (2 players)
      UTG checks, Hero bets $0.65, UTG raises to $5.05 all in, Hero requests TIME, Hero folds

      UTG shows 3 :spade: Q :diamond: (Ace Queen high)

      Did I play this one right? When he Check-raised me my thoughts were: "If he really had an Ace, why would he raise instead of call?" But I had'nt any stats on him so I just folded...

      This was my second last card in freeplay after having more than 25BB. With a bigger stack than 25BB is JJ in UTG a hand to play?

      You played the hand well.
      JJ is playable with bigger stack, but if you are not comfortable risking more than 25 bb, you don't have to do it and only play AA/KK.

      Hi tellef2307,

      At these limits smaller than NL50 I would fold preflop. Limping is a big no-no as you would hit your set enough to make up the loses. How would you play it without hitting a set?

      As you gain more experience you could raise to 3bb as a steal. The big blind would then either fold and you collect the blinds or he calls. The he might have the K or a monster and you could get the money in with you set. It depends onthe opponent though.

      Cheers
