      It looks to me I did biggest mistake trying to chceck/raise flop and let 4 ppl to see turn which led to possible completing their draws. When I am looking at hand again I can see I forgot about straight draw and watchin only flush draw.

      I can only thank god for that 8 on river :)

      well, that 8 on the river was your 1-4 that came to rescue.expect the following 3 times to lose in similar situation.

      regarding ur flop play: c\raise meant for trapping agg.players.since u dont use stats u predict in high probability that one out of the four of them will make a bet.

      u play on 0.2BB limit, don't look for fancy moves, wait for good spot and value it.
      its such a waste delaying a bet on a street.

      I can't agree more with shloogy.

      I also do this sometimes, but it's just really really bad :D

      Hi Horin,

      players on nl20 are to weak to check raise a 4 way pot, just bet out by yourself something like 0,75$ then you can push any turn.
