I hate doing that... going broke on an un-raised pot. But what about when you flop such a nice hand?

$2-5 NLHE, few limpers and you have Three (trey) Clubs Three (trey) Diamonds in the cutoff. You decide to limp and 4/5 players take a flop. It comes down:

Queen Diamonds Eight Diamonds Three (trey) Spade and everyone checks to you - you bet the pot $25. The button comes over the top and makes it $65 total and you re-raise... $165 total.

He pushes all in for around $500 total, and you're both even chipped.

Your action?

Depends on the situation - early on with 8 players with high stacks, or late on with fewer players and some on low stacks?

If it's early on, I'd take a risk and call - it's that or fold, and you've already put too much in the pot to back down now. You're playing with three of a kind, they have possibly got 3 or a kind also albeit of a higher card, so it's risky, but as I said you've already got plenty in the pot and a strong hand. If only another 3 would come down eh?

Then again, if the table was low on chips/players, I would be encouraged to back down and fold on the basis that although three of a kind is reasonably strong, if they had a pocket pair queen or diamonds you could end up seriously screwed. If that was the case, I'd fold and look to be playing even stronger hands.

Sorry, I meant queens or eights - although a pair of diamonds could also cost you dearly I suppose.
