      Basically i'm not sure of three things.
      1. Is my preflop raise ok considering i was against 4 limpers and oop postflop
      2. is my contibet oop against two people ok? given the texture of the board i incline to think it was, only barely tho
      3. I'm pretty sure that the 2nd bullet on the turn was a bad move. What do you guys think?

      About the villain, i was only for a few hands at that table, so i didn't know much about him

      Answering your questions:

      1) No, I don't like the raise PF. Even if you were IP, against two limpers I don't think you have enough FE to make this raise profittable.

      2) The texture of the board is good for a c-bet, but you also have to check what kind of opponent you're up against, the looser they are, the more inclined you have to be against c-betting.

      3) Yep, I don't like it either. You're getting yourself in a very big pot with a very small hand. Tell the truth, I hardly ever shoot a 2nd barrel. Only when I got decent reads that my opponent likes to float.

      agree, however:

      3) This is an okay-ish board for a 2nd barrel, but at nl5 you just don't have enough fold equity ever. Just stick to valuetowning the awful players and you'll find it works just fine :)

      Regards,
