      I was lured into completing PF because of the 3 limpers. I then decided i wanted to take initiative on the flop. I thought there was enough money in the pot.

      However, i think the push was probably wrong because;

      1) A flushdraw would reduce my outs to 6.
      2) The Bet before me shows some strength in a multiway pot.
      3) I don't think i have any FE
      4) I'm not entirely sure what the paired board could mean for this situation.

      Check/raising with strong draws (and your oesd ain't weak, it's the upper part, so you're drawing to nuts) is ok and is profitable. I mean, it looks really good here with a bet and caldcaller on the flop. Also, the pot is so large you can't possibly let it go, I'm afraid.

      I think it was played well. By the way, I don't agree with points 2. and 3. 1/3 pot bet rarely shows strength and you surely have lots of fold equity with this squeeze check/raise.
