      Yes, because the line you took is better for your opponents than yourself.

      When villain leads the river into 4 opponents he usually has a 9 or sometimes a bluff. When you raise, all bluffs fold and 9's call => you get owned.

      You also might get looked up by someone sat behind. 4 players could show a 9 on this river. That's why the river is a fold.

      Don't post results as it lessens the value of a thread.
