      Hi Calin1990

      If you look at the SHC, you see that we never ever LIMP or CALL a raise. So you had to fold 77 here utg2 because 77 isn't a solid hand to play with on that position as a shortstacker

      Also the phenomen setminig doesn't apply here since you have a shortstackers so you cut yourself in your hand because it will requires a bigger stack of you to limp here profitably

      Gerv: he is not shortstacked here :) . Still first-in limp is not that great because of decreased implieds...

      You have 64xbb here, so no SSS anymore. Better to rebuy to 100xbb and play BSS and leave the table when you need to pay the bb again.

      Flop: c/c or c/r will be fine. where the c/r will look mighty strong in 3-way pot and probably you will take it down there.
      Turn: as played ok

      Make a note of this fish :D
