Hi D0M41N!

The problem with this hand is in the way that it is bet. With a premium pair preflop, I absolutely must make a standard raise, which is to 3BB+1BB for each limper (120 chips). Betting less gives the opps the correct odds to try to outdraw me. When I give the opps the correct odds and do end up getting outdrawn, it's my own fault that I lose the hand.

On the flop, I get an overbet by an opp and a call of it. With an overpair to the board, I'm going to re-shove here and hope that nobody has 2 pair nor outdraws me.

The big problem though, was the limp preflop, as I gave the opps the correct odds to be in the hand, then when they hit a pair, there are plenty of opps that won't (nor should for a small number of chips) fold a pair.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.
