      Hey on the flop I wanted to play check raise, I hoped someone d better here...I did not bet because anyway many hands can call (flat call) and maybe complete on the turn like JT,KT,T8.... And in case of a bet, how you play on turn when some straights completes like in this case?
      On the turn with many players calling and big pot we have the right odds I think we have to call....thanks

      Preflop: This play is a big mistake. If you want to raise, you should make it much larger to isolate. But with so many players in front of you, I would definitely check 33 in the BB. If you don't hit a set, it's so difficult to continue and you are just bloating the pot with a weak hand.

      Basically your raise here only serves to sweeten the pot but that's unnecessary when it's a 6way limped pot.

      Flop: As played I would just bet and keep on firing. We can get stacks in by the River so why would you want to check/raise? Main purpose of c/r is to build up the pot so that you can play for stacks by the river. If you went to calculate stack sizes if you kept betting, you would have been able to ship the River.
