      Hero showed 8 9 and won $0.00 (-$9.95 net)
      CO showed 9 8 and won $19.05 ($9.05 net)

      Well another bed beat, but still, did i overplay my hand on turn? I put him on AQ, AJ A9 type of hand and i push becouse i didn't want to se a river card. Is push ok play here? Every time i tried to do some hero move is the same story, river is a worst card in deck :P

      With so many limpers the chance that they hit this board with 1p is really big, especially Ax. So we can't really bet this flop as a bluff into 3 people because we don't really have much FE so I would check the flop.

      What's villain's range here besides 2p? Can he not have the better straight KQ?

      Even against a rane like 77, 98, KQ, AJ-AT we only have 50% equity.

      Considering we have no FE we still need 45% equity when we ship this. So this spot only gets better for us if he raises draws which people don't do as often in a limped pot.

      In the odd case that he was bluffing by shoving you take away his chance to rebluff.

      So if we raise turn I recommend a smaller raise. Otherwise simply call and play the river as we are not very far ahead when he raises us.
