      Hello Linderoth,

      Pretty standard raise while even being in multiway pot. I don't really see any reason why we should give the opponent behind us good odds.

      By the way your hands should be posted into higher limit forums. :P

      Best Regards.

      Sorry I don't have enough rank for the appropriate forum just yet, may I keep posting here until I get Silver Rank?

      Thanks for the advice

      Doubt that Silver is really hard to get. :P So I guess if you play on those limits you should get it fast. :) As PokerStrategy also works with system and there is a specific reason for higher limit hands to be posted on higher limit forums I'd like to ask post them in future into higher one as soon you get the rank for it. Till that I can evaluate few hands, no problem with it.
