      I felt like I took a pretty weird line here but it seemed logical at the time.

      Pre: 8:1 in a MWP with a speculative hand. Seemed like a reasonable call.

      Flop: Flop is almost prefect for my hand. I didnt want to DB on the flop as I dont think it has much fold equity in a MWP.

      I figured my options were c/c, c/f or c/r depending on the action. However, when UTG min bets and CO only calls I assumed they were most likely to be on draws and when the SB c/raised I thought he would mostly be protecting a made hand like Top pair or better. I assumed he would probably have just taken advantage of the excellent pot odds and just call with a good draw rather than raise and make a big semibluff with a draw.

      When the SB makes it 1.40 to go I can just flat call here since I am getting the correct expressed odds but I felt that a raise was a better option here, mainly due to the fact that thought the two players behind me were more likley to be on draws than the small blind and that may give them the correct odds (implied / expressed) to call with what are most likely to be better draws than mine.

      Therefore I felt I had more equity vs the SB rather than the two players behind me, even if the SB has a strong made hand now and my plan was to raise/call.

      Too spewy on flop? If I miss the turn I can just fold or take a free card I guess.

      I don´t mind your flop c/r to then shove any turn card, but I would personally not bet that big on the turn, since SB most likely has there Ax hand, so I´d bet again 6$ on the turn to then shove river.

      Best regards,
