      I think I should've raised on the flop and if re-raised, should've shoved.. If my raise was called on that flop, I should've shoved the turn...

      Hey Rahica,

      Preflop is fine.

      I would raise directly on the flop. You are 3 way and there are plenty of draws available.

      When MP double barrels big into 2 players he is usually very strong. I would shove all in on turn.

      As played you are in a terrible spot on the river. BTN is is very unlikely to be bluffing here when he has such a small amount remaning and MP has to have something to call. It's pretty likely one of them has a 6. Having said that you only need to have the best hand 16% of the time to make that call. I'm not convinced it makes a huge difference whether you call or fold. I'd probably fold. At least you save yourself some variance this way.

      Best hand evaluation I had on pokerstrategy.com .. This was the exact answer I was searching for... As played: preflop, flop, turn, and river analysis and what you would've done ! Great judging ! Tx w34z3l !
