      Hero (CO): $5.66 (113.2 bb)
      BTN: $1.29 (25.8 bb)
      SB: $5.25 (105 bb)
      BB: $12.50 (250 bb)
      UTG+1: $5.07 (101.4 bb)
      UTG+2: $5.33 (106.6 bb)
      MP1: $11.71 (234.2 bb)
      MP2: $4.94 (98.8 bb)
      MP3: $2 (40 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with 5 5
      UTG+1 folds, UTG+2 calls $0.05, MP1 folds, MP2 calls $0.05, MP3 folds, Hero calls $0.05, BTN calls $0.05, SB folds, BB checks

      Flop: ($0.27) 5 7 8 (5 players)
      BB checks, UTG+2 checks, MP2 bets $0.05, Hero raises to $0.20, BTN calls $0.20, 2 folds, MP2 raises to $0.50, Hero calls $0.30, BTN calls $0.30

      Turn: ($1.77) 4 (3 players)
      MP2 bets $0.70, Hero calls $0.70, BTN calls $0.70

      River: ($3.87) K (3 players)
      MP2 checks, Hero checks, BTN checks

      I think I should've reraised turn but both players were calling very loose preflop and any 6 would have me beat. flush completes as well on the river so i wasn't very keen about putting out a value bet against 2 opponents.

      so what you guy thnk

      Hi!

      in an 5 way limped pot its a bit uncomfotable but if I raise on the flop first i raise bigger, and than go broke there.

      You have to protect ur hand as well as thier hands, thats the only way to get value from worse hands

      Hello Slurpee,

      Flop: You should raise it bigger right on the flop ~$0,40 and as you get 3bet then you can even play for the stacks while as you said they are loose players. They could easily even have 2pairs there and maybe even just a pair/pair+draw.

      As played
      Turn: Not much you can do while any 6x gives already a straight, so pot controlling is safer option.

      Best Regards.
