      Hello,

      Another dumb spot. In previous hand you said it's a shoves or fold situation. I guess my raise size aren't big enough. I wonder if I raise pot size like 0.62 is still a mistake here?

      I fold because even if I shoves, I think the two callers are going to come along. And this will decrease my chance of winning the hands. Plus MP2's min-raise really bothers me.

      PS: I include the result cause I think it's an interesting hand.

      Thanks,

      Hello cpers,

      Well, I am not a huge fan of 4betting in first place there actually. :) Since you kind of commit yourself there and at the same time they will have really hard time to go broke vs your 4bet with a lot worse. Therefore I'd just fold it preflop and let them have the pot.

      Obviously if you raise then you should plan to go broke not fold the hand as you did. :P

      Best Regards.
