    Hi WeaselBasher! With the bubble bursting, that means that we're ITM and can now try to accumulate chips for a deep run, to try to get to the final table. With 66 here, there are really three ways that I can play this preflop. I do have 15BB, so with someone already limping, I can limp behind to setmine OR I can make a std preflop raise to try to lessen the field and hopefully get the button to drop so that I can play the rest of the hand in position (planning to shove almost every flop) OR just open-shove since I'm at 15BB. If I was to std raise, for this blind level my std raise is to 2.5BB+1BB for each limper, so I'd raise to 2800. I start with 3BB, then drop to 2.5BB at 100/200 blinds, then drop it again to 2.2BB at 1k/2k. Either way (setmining or std raising pre), if the flop is checked to me, I'm going to make a value bet on the flop. Especially with the opp calling a preflop raise, this board most likely misses them... so I should have the best hand. I would make my std 1/2 pot value bet here, but due to the preflop raise, this bet is over 1/3 my remaining stack, which makes me pot-committed. Due to this, I'm shoving the flop here. In this situation, unless the opp is a calling station, I'm most likely going to limp behind to setmine preflop. This way I won't be pot-committed and can get off the hand if I get a scary flop. If the opp is a calling station, I'm much more likely to just shove pre to try and isolate the station that limped. I wouldn't normally make a std raise, as I'd be committed to shoving about any flop and if a broadway card hits the flop (which it almost always will)... then I might not be shoving with the best hand. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)
