      I won but don't know if I played right. I think raising Preflop is better? But I though the first person who raised might re-raise as they raised from early.

      Then the flop...Very draw heavy, maybe a bad idea to bet OOP on this most of the time. My thought process was 3rd caller was most likely very weak, 2nd caller might be on a medium-small pair and opener might have completely missed. I had a gut shot + the Ace might help if it hits but might not. Basically I win here or completely get out of the hand if I don't turn a K.

      Hello Edukator99,

      Preflop: You can as well just raise it up even here. But if you don't feel that comfortable the hand then Checking is fine as well.
      Postflop: Seems to be somewhat fine with the GS, although while having the FD on board I wouldn't really turn very aggressive with the hand. Rather raise it preflop and play this way.

      Best regards.
