Seat 9: royby75 folded before Flop (didn't bet)

I should've raised from the button knowing slayersmylie had a weekend that he decided to limp in with to get lucky!

I KNEW he had a WEAK hand

I vote on not raising preflop as my major mistake here

any other analysis?

I have a different take on this-- and its all about stack size- you have 2 limpers behind you-both have u severely outstacked-- bb=120 so to make a raise big enough to get them to fold- you have to pump it up to 600 minimum-and even then i doubt the big stack is folding his suited Q- add to that a 600 raise from you is almost half ure stack- so you really have to push- and KJ aint the hand to do that with-imo- you have just cleared the blinds- think you could have waited for a better spot to get it in-- so my point is-- i think you should have folded-- just my opinion-- gl- monk...

with all the action in front of me I am either folding or jamming it, flat calling just lets them sit and wait to hit their cards....Your stack is to small compared to them to have much post flop play, so just slam it and pray or fold

I agree with the other posters, jam or fold pre, mostly fold without reads.

Fold > jam >> call

With your stack size you have to shove or fold
