      I usually raise to 4 Big blinds, but on yesterdays coaching I've heard, that raise from late positions can be 3 BB plus 1 per limper. Is that okay?
      thanks for help :)

      This looks fine at first glance. wp.

      I raise to 3.5BB all positions except BU (and SB unopened) where i raise 3BB. I don't think it matters so much until you get to NL100 though. NL50 and lower I rase 4BB all positions except SB and BU where I raise 3BB unopened.

      Hey oedipa,

      nice hand, well played. Raising 3 or 4 big blinds in the late position doesn't make much difference up to NL100. I even prefer to raise 4BB on lower limits because raising less makes sense when you start to deviate from SHC and start stealing looser, but as long as you make value raises against fish, it's better to stick with 4BB raises to maximize your value.
