      This is NL10 right? You only have 49bb and every else on the table are pretty much short/med stacks?

      Anyway, you can consider raising this preflop, otherwise OOP you won't get much value if you hit your set. His raise on the flop is actually way too high and folding is not so bad since this was an unraised pot, but if you don't want to fold your set on the flop, and think he likely plays aggressive with draws, then your play on flop was just about ok.

      I personally think that's a bad flop to get it in... but OOP you don't have much choice if you don't plan on folding your set.

      Frist off all: rebuy... play with 100BB's not with some random midstack. It's bad, you'll miss value and it'll also commit you to some pots way to easy.

      Second: leave this table. There's not even a single full stack on the table. Look for a table with a lot of players that have full $10 stacks or at least more then $7. A few shortstack you can't avoid but playing at this table is just stupid.

      The hand as played, I wouldn't raise the SB either here I think. Complete is fine.

      On the flop... I don't know, I don't think i'd be able to lay this down anymore cause it's NL10. MP1 might show up with JT for TPGK & OESD, he might have slowplayed overpairs pre-flop to... so you have to go broke here imo.

      This is pretty ugly situation(for a 100bb stack). There is really no much worse hands that will pay you off in a unraised pot, but going all in for 50 bb is good play in my opinion.

      Agree with above that you should leave this table, too many shortstacks, you won't get paid.

      I would also shove this flop, you also have 10 outs so I'm not folding.

      Hi,

      considering your stack and the fact that he could do that move not just with TT, 99, 76, J7 and QJ but also with a broad range (77, JJ, JT, T9, T8, 89, Asxs, Ksxs, AT, ....) of hands which you beat, I would shove this, too.
      And if your are up against a straight you have backdoor outs (10 on turn).

      Best regards,
      Anin

      This.

      As for the hand itself, i'd still raise it preflop over 2 limpers and likely call a shove since i doubt people limp/shove 99-QQ too often. They do sometimes with KK+, but you'll also see guys just going nuts after your raise with random overcards or lower pocket pairs because they think you're a bully. Coupled with the times you win uncontested i think it's worth the play for 50bb. I don't hate the complete either tho.

      Postflop is fine, you can't fold a set for 50bb on such a drawy board.


      Hope it helps.
