      Hi NBASuns.

      Yes, you should have raised more preflop, but the question is, how much? Looking at the players who have entered the pot before you, they are both short stacks. UTG is horrible, and MP2 has just about the same stack as you, so both have made bad mistakes by entering this pot as limpers. Standard raise would be 4x +1 per limper for $1.50, but to punish MP2, I would raise to $2, committing him if he calls.

      After that action, you would be committed to any flop, but particularly this one, as you have TPGK, and can easily go all in.

      The minimum you should raise on this flop after his minbet is $3.60, so just push. What they might be holding isn't really so relevant I think, since you have made your hand and are committed.

      Post hands without results so that your viewers aren't influenced by the outcome. How you should play a hand isn't related to the showdown result, so it's better not to see that.
