      Again nothing you can do. The board is pretty dry... and you got beaten by 1 of the 2 possible straights out there. NH.

      I think there were too many limpers to raise here. I probably would have limped preflop. Raising is fine too, but I'd raise the usual amount I'd with stronger hands, that is 4BB + 1 for each limper = 8BB = $0.32

      As played, nothing you can do, I'd always go broke on that turn.
