Forgot to say in the initial post that I had 2 questions:

What do I do here?

Was my earlier $1.55 call bad...should I raise/fold in that situation?

Once the button re-raises here I'm thinking there are at least 2 other people at the table ready and willing to go all in. I don't want to do that since you could be up against AA KK or AK.

Let the maniacs have your $.15 and wait for an opportunity to trap them.

Foooooooooooooooooooooooooold!

I'd happily fold unless I'd witnessed MP2 go all-in's pre-flop with crap earlier in the game, and BTN had witnessed it as well.

I did fold...thought it was funny that the other 2 guys both had me beat.

I guess my real question was calling the $1.55 raise. Was that a bad call?

In hindsight I could have saved myself some $$ if I lay it down to the first raise, but my hope was that the initial bettor would also just call and I'd get to look at the flop. When he raised he made my decision easy.


Hero folded.

fold

you should have folded because i gaurantee that those people that went all in its very pssoible you had quenns , theother had kings, and the other had aces. if not you know they both prolly have over cards higher than yours, so its not worth all your 7 dollars in that one hand unless you have the nuts. good luck and try to see the other possibilities.

I don't know if I disagree with what dougiefresh123 said, but I certainly disagree with how he said it... whatever it was.

If you knew they both had unpaired over cards like Dougiefesh suggests (which would mean they both had A/K) then it would be an insta-call.

I would go allin against the loose players and fold to the sharks. Knowing the players at your table is very important here.

QQ against AA and KK always wins, as long as you can get KK to fold. I saw it on Youtube, so it must be true. ;)

With a raise and reraise in front of me, I'm not putting more than the initial .20 in there. Fold and let them fight for the pot.

Based on this post, I'd like to revise my answer. Call and pray.
