      Don't have a feeling I played this well. I have a hard time putting those limp/callers on a range.

      Hey badpinguin,

      without stats a random limp/caller on NL10 can really have wide variety of hands, for this reason you have to play as much ABC value poker as you can on micro limits.

      Here I don't think villain will often bluff donk here, but I would expect him to have a pair + straightdraw/TP + GS/2-pair kind of hands more often and against this you don't have enough equity to push with 2 overcards and GS. You would be about breakeven against 1 pair hands with your 10 clean outs, but I think you don't have 10 clean outs on average against his donking range thus I prefer to muck my hand on the flop, because a shove will be breakeven or even -EV.

      Regards,

      Mucking is fine on the flop, PF get into the routine of raising $0.40 + $0.10 per limper so there raising range decreases. Your flop outs might already be dominated so it's too risky to push here.
