      When you shove at a midstake always measure the bet to his stack. Its less intimidating to call a $5 shove with a $5 stack than a $25 shove with a $5 stack. Illogical but true.

      Your way over-shove (2.7 times pot) represented hitting a larger hand(maybe A10). You probably should have bet about 3/4 and tried to draw another call from the villain's face up ace-Q/J/9/8. Best case for you they hit their rag on the river and think theyve picked up a drop on you.

      I don`t like the check/raise on that flop. You risk of giving away a free card and the board is wet. I think you should lead out on that flop .

      hi
      cbet that flop in a such multiway pot . dont give them the chance to check behind a draw
      as played if you are check/raising ( witch i dont like ) do it biger at least ($1.45) .
      but this looks whey to strong against 4 players . almost overreping your hand.
      on the turn no reason to shove . bet 3/4 pot and hope he calls you with an A or some draws . you dont wanna maximize your folding equity here
