      Final Pot: $11,25

      PF: I know that a Isolation would be possible. I would do it if there was only 1 limper.
      But i don't like to do that against a 51/4 player from who i only have seen ~40 Hands (PFR was lower at this point) because its possible that he could have a better hand so i went for the save way.

      For the same reason i only called the Flop. His ch on T looked weak but i still put him on a low Pair or an weaker A. This is why i also called the R.
      Is there any spot (except for PF) where i should play more aggressive?

      prefer raising pf:
      - you're ahead against both limpers range
      - you're ip, so you don´t have to worry about c-betting on every flop and can take free cards if you choose so
      - if you limp, you give bu chance to isolate and not sure you want to play AT oop against a lot of heat
      - bb get to see free flop and likely sb would complete a lot of hands, but most important reason
      - MP1 and MP2 ranges are so wide, that they can't really continue a lot of flops and if they hit their Tx hand or Ax hand you win big pot with better hand

      Postflop: prefer betting turn and river for value. If you want to go pot control then you have to call his river bet
