      Hi 29206298, (That sounded a little bit... strange :D )

      PF:
      I'd call too given the odds, but you should play it cautiously.

      Flop:
      I'd bet out directly, the board is too drawy and you're up against 4 players. I'm assuming you were trying to go for a check/raise here, but IMO most players don't c-bet a lot against so many opponents unless they hit the flop pretty hard, and most often they won't hit it.

      Turn:
      With so many players in the hand I'd check too and see what the other players do. After one raise and a call, you're beaten way too often here IMO, and you don't have the odds to keep playing, I'd just call.

      River:
      Well, you hit the miracle card. :P
      I'd shove as well.

      Your biggest mistake IMO was not betting on the flop, with so many players you have to try to reduce the field and make anyone on a draw pay to go along with you.

      Your hand is too strong to play for pot control on that flop, forget pot control and protect your hand.
      You have to bet there, and if someone is drawing make them pay for it, you have no control over what cards are going to come on turn and river, but you do have control on how much you want your opponents to pay in order to outdraw you, if they hit it, you have to learn to see when you're beaten and let go, but that comes with time and practice.

      IMO = In My Opnion
      Well, I guess so... at least that's how I've been using it for ages now. :D

      i don't understand what you say about the turnplay.
      you said he doesn't have the odds to play any further but you still call.
      you get roughly 3.5/1 and have only 4 outs. isn't it then a fold?
      or do you have enough implied then??
