      Not at all.

      I don't think on the flop you can raise in a multi-way pot like that.

      Raising on turn is fine but I would probably even call turn. Raising is just too thin of value. You had position and you can go pot control. And other hands like KQ/AQ can easily go check/calling you all the way.

      I would raise preflop and collect dead money. If they call, you still have huge advantegies: position and initiative and still win pot 80% since limpers usually play fit/fold. So it's equity+ spot for sure even against 3 limpers. And if you hit flop like that, limpers gonna pay you with draws and medium pairs for sure

      Agreed. Didn't notice the flat-call pre!

      Hello Bogdan1190,

      Preflop: You can as well even consider to isolate here and not try to overplay TP type of hands postflop. :) Although obviously it's not a huge mistake to Call with the hand but your plan will be to play for strong made hands only.

      As played
      Postflop: Well, kinda marginal to raise on turn being in multiway pot. I guess I'd rather take the pot control there and Call it. There ain't gonna be that many draws from we should be scared but we could just value-town ourselves against strong hands.

      Best Regards.
