    How do you play against this?

    Me: UTG+1 calls the 150 blind (Ah8h)
    UTG+2 calls
    Folds to dealer she calls 150 blind.
    Small blind calls
    Big blind checks

    FLOP: 88J
    ME i raise to 300
    UTG+2 folds
    Button raises to 725
    SB and BB fold
    I push all in
    Button Calls shows (82 off)
    I am in the lead
    until the turn its a 2... River Q

    How do you play against that?

    tough luck there Frisky,,,You might have avoided some problems simply by raising preflop, you're the first one in, a nice , mabe even a 2.5x raise might have eliminated some of the competition, i.e.,,, 82o would probably fold to a raise....I know I would fold. I don't know what your chip stack was, if your were 5BB or so, shove your stack,,,but I don't know how big you were. Try out the Hand Replayer for this example,,,,you'll get more feedback,,,try it out now in this same thread.

      +1-- cept for the fact that A8s utg+1 is gin in the muck- for me--limping to flop a flush draw with that many left to act behind you is spewing chips-- some one raises and you have to fold-- try to remember that start hand values- are relative to position--- gl--- monk
