            Hi Bojanr86! With 88 from the SB, with 3 limpers in front of me, I'm going to complete here and try to setmine since the stacks are deep enough. If I thought that multiple of the opps would fold, I could also make a standard raise to 3BB+1BB for each limper. I flop middle set and I want to lead with a value bet here. Bets postflop need to be sized based on the size of the pot, number of opps and board texture. With 4 opps, I need to make a pot-sized bet of 100. I do not want to bet more or less, as players that bet more with better hands and less with marginal ones are basically turning their cards face-up to an observant opponent (something that I need to avoid). The same thing on the turn, except that with 3 opps, a standard bet sizing is 3/4 pot, so I will bet 495. The river gives me a full house and with only one opp left, with a small amount of chips, I will bet 320 (the amount that they have left). I could shove here, but by putting more chips in, this may scare the opp into folding and with a made hand that is most likely the best hand.... I want them to call, not to fold. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)

                          Hi Bojanr86,



                          I generally don't advocate limping into pots. With 98s we can raise preflop some of the time or just fold. With this type of hand we want to have initiative to play postflop because our hand will flop weak pairs and rarely flop draws so we need to be the aggressor to be able to take down the pot with a cbet the times that we completely miss. As played, I think folding is okay because the board is very wet and we don't have initiative and we are OOP and our opponent can put a lot of pressure on us on later streets. An alternative is to turn our hand into a bluff by taking a check-raise line to try to pick up the pot on the flop against the hands that have missed the flop. But this is a high variance line to take especially with this flop as this is a bad flop to cbet with air.
