      Hi, today I got this weird situation in which I haven't been before.
      First I limped simply because of Call 20 rule in order to catch three-of-a-kind.
      As you can see, the flop turned out to be 888. Since both opponents checked, I thought that they both had some high cards such as AK and didn't catch a flop therefore I raised. I think this was a good move since most of the times I would be ahead in that sort of situation.
      I think that Turn was my biggest mistake and I should have folded or the very least I should have folded on the river.
      What should I have done or did I just get unlucky?

      Hello TheBrownie,

      From MP3 you can as well just raise up your PP. Although as played I don't like your idea to continue on turn. Rather just Bet/Fold there, I doubt he is raising against you with weaker holdings while even being in multiway pot, 8x is also possible. It's just a freeplay pot, don't overplay your hand.

      Best Regards.

      Yep, I thought the same. Overplaying is my biggest mistake. In situations like this it's hard for me to decide am I behind or still ahead. After more hand evaluations hopefully I will understand this better.
