      Full Tilt - $0.10 NL RUSH (6 max) - Holdem - 6 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

      MP: $12.49
      CO: $11.07
      Hero (BTN): $9.70
      SB: $10.10
      BB: $10.00
      UTG: $18.40

      SB posts SB $0.05, BB posts BB $0.10

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.15) Hero has 8:heart: 8:spade:

      fold, MP calls $0.10, CO raises to $0.50, Hero calls $0.50, fold, BB raises to $2.40, MP calls $2.30, CO calls $1.90, Hero calls $1.90

      Flop: ($9.65, 4 players) 8:club: J:heart: J:diamond:
      BB bets $7.60 and is all-in, MP calls $7.60, fold, Hero calls $7.30 and is all-in

      Turn: ($32.15, 3 players) 7:spade:

      River: ($32.15, 3 players) 4:diamond:

      Obviously I got lucky on the flop, but I would like to know do I have enough set equity before the flop against 3 players to call here? In other words is my preflop call standard or bad play?

      No, according to the traditional poker strategy standpoint you do not.

      you have roughly 8.5 to 1 chance of hitting a set on the flop and obviously you don't get their money every single time this happens. This is why the call 20 rule was invented.

      Call(20) = If your effective stack is 20 times that of the raise you have to call you can call for implieds preflop with a pocket pair.

      If I knew BB defended his blinds light and likes to Squeeze light I back/raise All-In if CO folds. We often have excellent fold-equity and pretty good equity against his defending hands.

      Bb 3-bet is quite huge, but since there are already 2 callers and likely if you hit your set, you´ll stack him, since he is shoving close to 100% flops
      So if you want to gamble call pf is fine

      Thanks for help. I would have folded definitely if two other players had folded, but since they called, I thought if I hit I will stack one or two of them definitely.
      Thanks again.
