      Hi all,

      This is in a $33 PKO and I have a $16 bounty on my head. People at my table have been massively overcalling at my table for any bounty. I have two questions:

      1) Can you ever make a case for folding preflop?
      2) Results aside, how do you play this flop? Do you even like bottom two pair with this many players in the hand?

      Always nice to see you posting a hand, but I have moved your hand to our hand discussion forum. There fits it better. Pre-flop calling is close, because 62s isn’t playing that well post-flop. Off course multi way you get nice odds to see a flop here.

      The flop is interesting, and the flop is draw heavy. The change it will be checked around is decent and even if you check I would go broke here on a bet. You are blocking 2 set combos’ and the change you are up against a better 2 pair isn’t to likely ether. I think your shove is fine here, but it’s to bet he hit better on the river.

      Next time it’s smart to remove the outcome of the hand or put it in a spoiler. It could influence the feedback what you get.
