: Hero is Button with 7
UTG calls $0.25, MP calls $0.25
At this point I raise. My standard open at $25NL 6-max was $1, so with two limpers I'm putting in $1.50 ($1 + a bb for each limper).
Ideally the SB, BB, and limpers fold and you take the pot right there.
Getting a call from one of the limpers isn't too bad either, as you have position.
: ($1.25) 6
, 2 (5 players)
SB checks, BB checks, UTG bets $0.75
, 1 fold
, Hero raises to $2
, 2 folds
, UTG calls $1.25
If I had reads on players then I wouldn't necessarily hate re-raising the flop. But you have a million people in that pot and a really weak over pair and no reads, so in this case I'm just not digging it.
Well... I say that. But I guess I pop it up a good percentage of the time. I make it *more* though. If he put $.75 in, he's always calling another $1.25 and we don't want to let him draw to something. Plus if he calls a bigger re-raise we know we have to shut down, as we're probably beat.
And on the turn, I'd just fold there. The pot size is too big for the strength of you hand, especially when there were so many prospectors in the pot.
