      Phil Galfond in my head saying "Play your draws aggressively" But in a multi way pot I'm better off just checking the flop?

      firstly, i would just raise preflop for value
      then, if you decided to check, dont bet some stupid amount like 1/2pot, just bet pot on flop and call the minraise, otherwise played ok

      Hello Krishjanis,

      Preflop: With such a hand you can easily even isolate here but of course taking the passive line is fine as well while a lot of small stacks in the hand.

      As played
      Postflop: Only thing I would change here is that I would bet the flop like $0,06 or even pot size. But otherwise for the given odds I doubt that I am folding my hand. Nice hand!

      Best Regards.
