      I've played some poker before, but just started giving it a serious go recently.

      There are some situations where I feel very unconfident about my play; this is one of them. I just didn't really know how to decide what my odds of winning were, especially since players on nl2 will play such strange hands. What should I have done here?

      Known players:

      0.01/0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.90 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with A:club: , K:club: . UTG1 posts a blind of $0.02.
      UTG1 checks, UTG2 raises to $0.04, MP1 folds, Hero raises to $0.12, MP3 calls $0.12, CO folds, BU calls $0.12, 2 folds, UTG1 calls $0.10, UTG2 calls $0.08.

      Flop: ($0.63) A:heart: , 9:diamond: , 3:heart: (5 players)
      UTG1 bets $0.04, UTG2 folds, Hero raises to $0.40, MP3 calls $0.40, BU raises to $0.97 (All-In), UTG1 calls $0.93, Hero calls $0.57, MP3 calls $0.57.

      Turn: ($4.51) 7:heart: (3 players)
      UTG1 raises $0.91 (All-In), Hero calls $0.91, MP3 raises to $3.40 (All-In), Hero calls $0.89 (All-In), MP3 gets uncalled bet back (All-In).

      River: ($9.02) 2:heart: (4 players)

      Final Pot: $9.02

      Hello 307th,

      And welcome to the forums! Good to see new names posting their hands and trying to fix their leaks. Good luck!

      About the game,

      Preflop: I'd rather even raise it bigger since there are so many loose opponents behind us, ~$0,16.

      As played
      Flop: Yeah, raising is likely fine but I'd raise it bigger, ~$0,70 or something similar. As played when we raised smaller and we get shoved in, I'd rather just fold it there, they are very likely going to Call there with any kind of draw and also might be already beat by any kind of set.

      As played if flop was called
      Turn: Rather just fold it. :) Flush also arrived now.

      Best regards.
