      On the turn I reasoned that a raise would make the bettor fold if he didn't have a flush, and if he did have a flush, I would take his stack on the river anyway. Plus maybe I could get over-calls from the other two guys if I just called.

      The results were rather disappointing though, a tiny pot.

      How would you have played flop and turn?

      I'd fold PF. But depending on the situation and your experience, I believe limping is not bad either.

      I'd semi-bluff the flop, you got position and if you don't hit on the turn you'll probably have the option to see a free river, and you also start building the pot right away.

      Is this not the perfect hand to limp in a multi-way for implied odds?

      [/quote]I am usually careful with semi-bluffs against more than one opponent, but I think you're right, I should have bet the flop here to start building a pot, and there was not much to lose...

      There's just one limper and you're in MP. But you do got a point.
      If the table's been passive I think it's OK, there's very small chance that you'll get raised.
      As I said, I don't think it's a bad play, but without enough experience I'd rather just fold.

      They all showed weakness, so you got good FE.

      Fold preflop: only 1 limper and no position. Bet flop: you have a strong draw and want to get the pot directly or build a pot...
