      Blinds: $0.25/$0.50
      6 players

      Stack sizes:
      UTG: $100
      UTG+1: $26.40
      CO: $15.52
      Button: $106.75
      Hero: $53
      BB: $31.01

      Pre-flop: (6 players) Hero is SB with 9:diamond: T:diamond:
      UTG (poster) checks, 3 folds, Hero calls, BB (poster) checks.

      Flop: 5:diamond: 8:club: J:diamond: ($1.5, 3 players)
      [color:#cc0000]Hero bets $1[/color], [color:#cc0000]BB raises to $2.5[/color], UTG calls, [color:#cc0000]Hero raises to $11[/color], [color:#cc0000]BB raises all-in $30.51[/color], UTG calls, [color:#cc0000]Hero raises all-in $52.5[/color], UTG calls.

      Is there any reason to play this any slower? Because I had two opponents in the hand it made my odds even better especially since they may be covering some of each others outs. The thing I was most worried about was that one would have the nutflush draw and the other a set, so that I'm only drawing to a straight.

      Why would players play their aggressively?
      Since they also have some fold equity against better hands.
      Doubt that you´re gonna get a lot of folds if you decide to go 3-bet with 11$, which you commit to call BB shove or shove with any turn.
      So I like to call flop and evaluate on the turn.
      But playing aggressively isn´t bad, just I don´t play my draws aggressively in limped pot, because don´t believe to have enough fold equity.
