5-5 Bike Hand - standard or stupid preflop?
 
I have ~420, everyone covers me. Most are playing 800-1000 with two players who have 2k.

A few nuckle heads limp in. I limp 7d 8h 9d Th.
Next to act a 50yo TAG experienced button makes it 40 total, 6 players call, I pop it to 280 which leaves me 140 behind.


BTW this was a really fun game to play in. Lots of big pots where they ran it 2 or 3 times. In one particularly sick hand AAxx suited in clubs got it in against a open ender/back door st. flush draw.
The first two turns/rivers featured the underdog hiting the straight.
Final board gives AA a flush on the turn but puts up the straight flush redraw which hits on the river.

I like it. TAG either reraise and get you a bunch of dead money or a bunch of people call and your hand does well multiway.

Somewhat standard short stack play in my opinion.

1) I wouldn't limp.
2) Is 280 a full pot raise? If not you should have raised full pot.

yeah you can make it even more, 360 or so. It doesn't make a huge difference though. I think the original limp is OK.

Dang, now I can't remember the exact amounts. I did raise the pot. Maybe I raised ~285 more and had 140 behind.

I would just raise the hand coming in 90 percent+ of the time, and stack off if I got 3bet. You are usually going to have a very easy decision on the flop with your stack here if you make it 50 and see a flop 5 way or something.

The limp/rr is pretty creative though and I don't think it is a bad play by any means if you can trap enough dead money in.
