      i don't see a point in raising him on flop. there is way too big possibility that one of them will have that K cuz of the preflop raise and so only top of theyr ranges stay in game.

      tho i don't like hes bet on flop, he looks like fish, they usualy donk pots with TP+.
      i'd go for just a call and then see what brings turn

      don't raise flop; you are in position with a great value hand and a good draw. If you raise you isolate yourself against better hands.

      Hello inlovewithamsterdam,

      While having the multiway pot I'd just take the odds and Call while he even gives us them. And maybe get the other guy into the pot as well.

      Best regards.

      You're totally right fellas, I need to put more thinking into my lines.
      I sometimes find myself doing some of the raises with rather little thought! Working on it!
