      If you have a lot of players willing to call behind you then you can make you preflop raises bigger, especially with monsters from earlier positions, start with 4BB.

      On the flop no way to slowplay your hand, not only draws and hits will pay you now but also K or Q on the turn can very well kill action. So bet for value and hope to get some calls right now. And you want to make the pot as big as you can, with only two bets left on turn & river it's harder. Hoping someone would bet in this board 4way especially when it connects with your UTG range very well is marginal imho.

      As played I would bet bigger on the turn, close to pot size, if opponents have hand on this board they will call no matter what I think, and we need to bloat the pot up now.

      Hi Shero,

      Preflop: I would make it 4x from UTG @ 2nl

      Postflop: No reason to slowplay the hand on a wet board. You want to bet big for value.

      We get lucky on the turn and have the nuts almost always so betting is fine.

      And the river is easy game.
