      Turn: ($15.87) A (3 players, 3 all-in)

      River: ($15.87) 2 (3 players, 3 all-in)

      Total pot: $15.87 | Rake: $1.05



      reviewing the hand I called in the first place for set value and got carried away with having a weak over pair and minraised MP1 in case of bluff (AJ+) when I thought I should have folded. After the reraised i was pot commited anyway so no problem there. Alos i only had about 10 hands with each of the 2 players so no reliable stats or reads.

      What do you think

      I actually like squeezing this hand because I like being a squeezemonkey

      But calling IP to play your hand IP is also good. I dont like calling preflop just solely for set value

      Flop i don't get freaky so I just call because I dont see any value in raising

      I play MSS in this situation more like BSS rather than boomchaka SSS ;)

      Well If I think I am ahead I like to raise to protect from over cards. but By raising the way i did I pot commited myself and giving better pot odds rather than protecting myself :)

      It turned out good however they had 8T and K8 (lmao). but I normally would have folded cos of the pleflop raise of UTG. The hand range i did put him on surely did not include K8o

      But do they call your raise? Mostly not 100% whereas hands that have you beat are calling those raises more

      I agree with you Gerv, but isn't it me making a mistake then if I give the opponent the correct pot odds to call. where as maybe if I go all in, the opponent will call less often but then it will be his mistake and therefore +ev.

      Maybe if they have an OESD but you block 2 outs. They mostly have between 2-6 outs now because of your nines so they need solid pot odds of 12% (=8:1)

      So your thinking is a bit off here in this case I think especially with the second sentence of you argueing exploiting the times they fold too much. Thing is you let them play perfectly namely you give them a signal ''Hey your toppair ain't good'' ;)

      Best regards,
      Gerv
