      BU ($10)


      SB posts small blind ($0.10)
      BB posts big blind ($0.20)

      Dealing pocket cards
      Dealing to HERO: [A , Q ]
      MP1 calls $0.20
      MP2 raises $0.40 to $0.40
      MP3 calls $0.40
      Hero raises $1.80 to $1.80
      3 folds
      MP1 calls $1.20
      MP2 folds
      MP3 raises $4.61 to $5.01 [all in]
      HERO???
      Two guys left the table a hand before so I stayed to finish the orbit since I payed the blinds
      The call would be now less than 2x of the original raise should I call?
      Was it a mistake that I didn't push already from CO since it was already 5xbb + bb + sb and some vids say that I should just shove with 4+ limpers, as we count minraise as 2xlimper?

      Hi,

      Yes it is better and easier to shove directly.

      After his shove I would call too. There is simply too much money in the pot.
      MP1 is a fish for playing l/c.
      MP2 is also fishy for min-raising with short stack so no SSS.
      MP3 cold call/shove range can be a monster but A-rag, small PP as well.

      Any other info about the villains?

      Unfortunately I just moved up the limit so I have no info on the players. No notes and stuff... did make notes now though as I obviously called with so much money in the pot.
      MP1 had AA
      MP2 had 99
      MP3 Folded
      My notes now:
      On MP1, UTG/MP pref limp/cc monsters (no need to put shove since its AA)
      On MP2 (no SSS, MP pref minraise/shove pp 9)
      On MP3 (MP pref cc minraise, weak)
      Do you think this kind of notes are helpful?

      Hi,

      Yeah those notes are very good to make. I make notes all the time. See:
      http://www.pokerstrategy.com/strategy/bss/1587/1

      lol at MP1 l/c/c AI AA. I play at FTP and PS. You can colour your opponents (with notes). I have something like:
      Red - TAG BSS
      Orange - SSS
      Pink - fish
      etc.

      Hello,

      If you are a bit confused to which size you want to reraise, see a minraise as 2 limpers so in fact you see 5 limpers. I tend to shove preflop if I see 4+ limpers with hands like AQs

      As played, after your $1.8 raise, you cannot fold - because of the equity - if someone raises behind you preflop so I stick it in
