      Was raising there on flop for protection ok?What about shutting down on turn... i`m wondering if bet/fold turn would have been a better line to take?

      Hello cozacu,

      Why should you raise for protection on the flop? You will rarely even get called from a lot worse. At the best we could consider just Calling and reevaluating the turn and that's at the best. :)

      Best Regards.

      I raise not to get called by worse but to take down the hand right there... if i just call there are a ton of cards that can make our hand weaker.You think i should never raise in such spots?

      Why should we? We are just isolating against very strong hands while being in multiway pot.
