      I think the BTN raise with 44 is okay. The bet is also good, though could have been larger. Maybe something like 3/4, but I feel he would have called you or raised anyway.

      Did you have any reads on the UTG+1 player? I think this would change your play post flop massively. For example if he was a looser player, I would be worried about him holding something like A9s, A6s, 910s or even a set of 6's. If he is fishier however he could have been bluffing.

      Knowing what cards he had, it looks like a bad play from him and a bad beat for you. Though without seeing them I think it would have been an easy fold on the flop imo.

      I dont like your play nothing!! you have 44 with 2 callers, you have 20BB so your raise put you commited basically! So i prefer or call preflop and see to cheap flop or raise allin and try to get the money ,with 20BB you cant inducing with this hand, better if you have AA-TT and AQ+ or something like that to induce .

      In fact, correct me if I'm wrong but I think this is in the wrong thread. There is a thread for tournament hand discussions.

      My comment was for a NL cash game. Things change massively in tournament play.

      I admire, but I saw how these players play and what are they all following so I came in with such a role, it's not realistic to rush me out with 78 + utg go all in

      According to me, by playing their game, I played how I should not know why he flipped such a flop, probably a risk, but yesterday I have over 20 hands where I'm losing on the river was simply not a day : D

      It looks like 1 of my colleagues has moved it to the right board. Anyway, with a 19bb stack and 3 limpers already I would most likely shove instead of raising. Now you will get most of the time in a tricky post-flop situation with over cards and that’s not what you want.

      Cheers,
