      River: ($5,20) 4:club:


      Final Pot: $5,20

      Is this played correctly ?
      I raised to 8BB with 4 callers preflop.
      After the flop, I missed it, but went all-in because I had less than half the potsize left. It seems so counter-intuitive.

      After 5 limpers, it would be better to push preflop here to maximize your fold equity. You want to see 5 cards with your drawing hand, in case you get called by a pocket pair.

      If you make a normal raise here, you are pot committed anyway and have to push on the flop with less fold equity on any flop, no matter if you hitted or missed, since you´re OOP.
