just to share this one and see if anyone has some comments or thoughts about it... i acted a bit desperate, but my stack wasn't that huge anymore at that point.

Couple of limpers, I think I would just shove directly pre-flop instead of limping. You have 8 bb left, so it is basically push or fold. Losing to a full house on the river is unlucky, but not much you can do about that.

glad you say that and you're most likely right. my reasoning here was to get a cheap shot to flop a set. would have gone all in then or folded otherwise and have a couple of hands left to see... on the other hand flopping the set i wouldn't have left any leverage with that little chips to deny pot odds, so yeah, shoving and finger crossing next time

Yes, normally limping is the right play to see a cheap flop indeed, but you don't have the chips to gamble on a 1/7 chance to hit a set and fold if you don't hit it. and as you said yourself, you were basically pot comitted at that point
