      Final Pot: $7,95

      I didn't have the stats during the game. Do not consider them.

      Ok, Ingol might say: limping sucks hahahaha. But the pot odds were already 9:1, so can I call in such a situation?

      And flop play. My first thought was: check/call, because I hadn't been the aggressor.
      Then while the other players played I realised I had loads of outs. Nuts flush draw and 2 overcards... so when my turn came again I figured I'd go all in.

      Was it rightly played? Should I have folded? Or maybe bet on the flop?

      What do you think?

      12+ outs drawing to the nuts I am betting about .35 and hoping for 2 callers, setting up a nice turn push. If I am raised I go all-in. ATs is a good limp behind with 3+ limps, if I was playing LAGish I might consider pushing preflop. And no, I dont think a short stacker can really fold that flop, I wouldn't.

      i would push preflop with ATs and 3 limpers, i would limp something like KTs KJs SC Axs 22-66 , but ATs is too good.

      i think i would bet/raise/shove since you have a big draw.

      No Stats, No push with marginal hands.

      FD + Overcard gives u like 11 outs but I only give you 9 becuase you want to Flush it. so when 2 players take interest in the flop whereas I think MP2 is taking a Stab, you can either Call or Shove this one. I would say shove to maximize your Value.

      Calling is fine but not optimal as MP2 has still something to do + you are OOP so you should play check/x on the Turn again, risking another free card given and stuff.

      I would Shove
