      Final Pot: $10.66


      Apart from the fact i should not limp from UTG. (Table was passive with very small raises and i always feel like i can spare 4 cents on hands with potential like this. Hard not to become a calling station or at least a limping station :D in those tables =[ ).

      Are there any ideas on how i could have played this hand better? I bet big on the flop because there were many people in the hand , i wanted to chase out any flush draws and possibly understand i am already behind if i get reraised when i have raised so big myself.I got called twice and then reraised. Should i fold my hand there? I know the possibility to flush on the flop is 1 in 115 or so , but against so many opponents i tend to get cautious.
      On the other hand people on NL5 arent too bright poker players and that reraise might not mean im behind. I suppose the only option would be to fold or push all in , right?
      I d also like to know how i should react if i called , and the next card ,which is pairing aces came.

      Wow that's a really ugly spot to be in.
      I tend to lay this down here too, problem simply is that even if you are in front he does at least have a Flushdraw or Twopair and has outs to beat you. It kinda shows strength to raise with the action you and the callers gave.
      On the other hand of course the opponents on NL5$ can't really be taken serious, so maybe you waste big money by folding here.
      Would be nice to have some reads here and be able to judge if he is reasonable or not.

      I guess this would be a reason for me to call it sometime (50/50) :)
