      I know this hand is played baad and should have been raised PF, but I was afraid of the limper(s). How much should I have raised PF? 3xraise + 1 pr limp = 10$? I hate raising that much with an unmade hand. please evaluate

      yes, definitely raise PF to 10$. You have an unmade hand, but they dont know it, and it will be much easier to play it after a reraise (in this spot you probably would have won the pot by CBetting).

      I think bet on the turn would have been preferable for protection. Or a check/raise if you knew youre opponents would try to take it at that moment.

      Also if you only reraise AA KK, then you will be transparent.

      Hi,
      I would 3-bet preflop to ~10$. As played, you have to bet the turn (~7$) for protection and value.
