      I dont really know how to play this hand by the book, but here is my opinion:

      There are 2 other players in this pot and these players limped from early position and middle position. We can assume that they have decent hands, like some kind of suited connectors, A + a low kicker or a small pair. Raising in the blinds will give you a awkward position preflop if you miss the flop.

      You can assume that you have the best hand at the flop, but again i feel its a bit awkward. Because we have a flushdraw and straightdraw, and a ace. The opponents can also have hit a set. So i would have just checked and seen what the other players do.

      Hello MeAmor22,

      I like your play here and I wouldn't play it much differently, might even protect your hand on the flop by leading out.

      And nope, I am not recommending you to raise those hands preflop unless your postflop play is better.

      Best Regards.
