      Hey Itamarlazar,

      Hand is played fine until the river. The bet is correct but the 3bet is a bit too spewy. You wont see that many hands in a multiway pot calling your 3bet/shove. Just B/F the river. You also didnt invest much till then.


      Best regards,

      1st
      thanx for the evaluation.
      2nd
      You said that the 3rd bet was too much because most of the times I want get called?
      Or because I should have realized that I don't have the best hand?

      Regards,
      Itamarlazar.

      The raise already represent a pretty decent range which I doubt that you have beat.So if you dont beat the range that he raised then the 3bet doesnt really make sense at all. If you 3bet/shove it means that you are doing for and that you expect to have the best hand. So just bet for value the river and if somebody goes over the top just fold.
