      Hey,
      I am not sure about that turn raise, but if u think he will call u with draw or Ax or some 9x then it will be good. But he still makes it so small, so i like to raise and on river i would still bet and go for a thin value, cause K doesnt change much.

      Hello foolboydesire,

      The turn raise is very thin, I guess I'd rather just go for pot control there being in such a multiway pot. They could easily have better hands. And as played and as you raised on turn, I guess I'd even like Checking behind there, I just don't see many worse hands which Call you there unless the player is really really bad and calling down with any pairs.

      Best regards.
