Your call preflop was good as you had the desired multi-way pot for set-mining. What i don't like is the donk bet against 3 opponents. These types of bets against multiple opponents are showing great strength, exactly what you don't wish to show right now! Give the aggressor a chance to C-bet this pot and some others to call. C-bets are more easily called ...

In real poker tournaments, when the lowest denomination chip is no longer needed, they chip-up all they can and then have a chip "race" for the odd ones.

Yes you should consider limps as action because if you have only M of 2 and he already put 1 BB he gets good pot odds and he is very likely to call. That said with such a low stack you have to take action and if you do not have any reason to believe a lot more people will call you should still go in. If he limps 1/4 of his hands you will get your flip most ...

When faced with what you believe to be a tough play such as this one it is helpful to review the hand and narrow your opponents range. You did not give specifics (it would be helpful to know action), but lets assume this is a 10 handed game and take some liberties to demonstrate. UTG +2 raises to $20 (4xBB) in this spot we can often assume he is playing a ...
