      No, pushing flop would be correct if there was only 1 opponent, but since there are more than 1 you should play c/f all the way.

      Pushing turn was also a mistake, because one of your opponents can easily hold Kx and therefore hit the turn card and even if it was blank it's c/f all the way when there are overcards and you face more than 1 opponent.

      Yeah, the bet on turn was dangerous. You only c-bet when you are facing just one opponent. And only bet on turn with a made hand!

      Hello Anduke,

      When you have a trash hand and face multiple opponents post-flop, just check/fold it. Only go all-in if you have a made hand

      [Edit] In fact I like the preflop push here with a 17bb stack against those opponents, if you have a read on them they limp loose and call pretty often, shoving preflop is the best play with Pocket Eights!

      Best regards,
