      This is our first hand in. We post in CO and can thus see no stats of any of the opponents. I will post my thoughts on the hand after 3 comments or so from other community members.

      Well I suppose the pf raise is quite loose but then I have no idea about the average opponent at this limit and maybe they'll fold often enough to a SSS raise to make it profitable. Also, perhaps the extra BB poster in the pot makes players limp with hands they otherwise wouldn't since the pot odds are better. If so, they'll be less likely to call a raise since their hands are more marginal.

      On the flop, with bottom pair and an OESD, I'm also pushing given we are preflop aggressor.

      I think the fact that those short stacks are calling means they aren't very good. So it's not a terrible steal.. Obviously push on flop..

      I would check preflop, good players will 3bet nearly any2 and you will have a tough decision qt plays "ok" multi-way and can flop some decent pairs.. anyway as played nice hand. btw you can even consider a flop check because i dont think a better hand will fold and against worth hands you are WA.
