      Yes, raise flop because of the number of opponents. On nl5 they will not put you on a set too much, and even then he isnt folding his T or 2pair.

      Even if they are thinking players as you suggest in your post, its better to protect and get value than to be sucked out on. You should get called by a T and a 2pair might even re-raise.

      If he has better set then theres nothing you can do about it, but on the flop you can stop him making a better set or a straight on the turn by raising.

      If you like slowplaying to extract more value then its ok, but you will be sucked out on sometimes, it happens.

      Hello,

      Yes, you can likely raise on flop for value otherwise I am going broke.

      Best regards,
