      Hello. Unfortunately I don't remember my reason to openraise this. CO and BU were tight multitablers, but MP and blinds were unknowns. So I think this should be a fold preflop.

      As played I think there is a little fold equity on turn, so I decided to check and evaluate the situation. If MP bet pot I would fold, but here I got a nice price considering he won't fold any river.

      Was my postflop line the right play? Thanks

      I think I like preflop because I rather want to take iniative and assume unknowns are not too loosely

      I think you can bet smaller on the Flop because it has more or less the same effect, only you increase your EV by risking less.

      The Turn is indeed a check/evaluate depending on pot odds. The riverplay is explanatory but pretty transparant so at some point you cannot be +EV on the higher limits doing this
