      I knew that come showdown I'd have no hand, but it seemed everyone was checking their way through the hand I couldn't resist introducing a little action to the mix ;) - plan was to represent trips on the 2 being than pocket 2's is a hand i would definitely limp with, tho against multiple opponents this was probably a silly move.

      I take it in a situation like this against multiple opponents the ideal strategy would just be to play defensively and check/fold through to showdown yeah? Also don't understand why the SB check his way through flop and turn with top pair, yeah his kickers no good but still, its clear he had the best hand here.

      Also first post on a hand evaluation board!! :)
