UTG has been limping often seems like a calling station type. MP3 has been fairly active and seems very LAG. SB is new to the table no reads except he obviously like limping in the SB :club: . So, I would like to know if my raise size is OK, I figured to make it 4x with 3 limpers in as I normally go for 2.5x when opening. Is this a no brainer spot to get it in? We are close to bubble fwiw, although usually that doesn't factor in to my play but I use it to gauge my opponents play as most tighten up near the bubble.PokerStars No-Limit Hold'em, 1.1 Tournament, 125/250 Blinds 25 Ante (9 handed) - Poker-Stars Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.comCO (t7920)Button (t2025)SB (t10075)Hero (BB) (t6060)UTG (t15215)UTG+1 (t13975)MP1 (t690)MP2 (t9832)MP3 (t11415)Hero's M: 10.10Preflop: Hero is BB with APosted Image, KPosted ImageUTG calls t250, 3 folds, MP3 calls t250, 2 folds, SB calls t125, Hero bets t1000, UTG calls t750, MP3 raises to t11390 (All-In), 1 fold, Hero ???

Ya, I'm never folding here. Based on him flatting the utg limp, I'd think you are facing a smaller pair a large % of the time, with a few weaker aces in his range. You should never be crushed here. Off to the races.

Is the 4x raise OK considering the limpers?

Pre, I'd probably go more like 1400-1500, but as played I call. With micros, I tend to stick to the 3x+1bb for every limp.

How is our stack compared to average? If we raise here, get flatted and miss, are we basically in last place (aside from the couple other real shorties)? If so, I think I might just open shove.

Cram-a-rama...you're going to see AQ/KQ or be in a race against a small pair or even an occasional A-x quite often here.

I make it 5x here with that many limpers and being OOP. Definitely a call to that shove, you are never crushed here, so just run good in the race

Flops are kind of like vagina's. The wetter they are, the harder you hit them.

With t1225 in the pot when it gets to you, I would probably just ship it in as it would increase your stack size by 20%+. I hate making it t1000 and getting called in two places because life sucks when you miss the flop.

Fssssssssst. I can count the limpers, I swear. With 3 in and being oop, you gotta make this at least 1500 pre, if not more.

I'm beginning to think shoving the first time around would have been better. Thanks for all the insight. Oh yeah, the guy turned up K3 suited. LOL

Did the Krablar win? I'm guessing the flop was K 3 3

There is nothing wrong with people continuing to post their thoughts after you've posted results.

No, A high was good enough for the win.
