      NH.

      I like the way you played it. You got two calls on the flop with your re-raise and then the 8 of hearts comes giving the board both a straight and flush draw. At these limits players will chase almost anything, so you are really making them pay to catch their hand.

      Against just one player, I would have probably toned it down and bet for value, maybe a 3/4 sized bet. Against 2, I like the shove as, again, they love chasing and you really want to protect. Also, shoving can really look like a bluff and it wouldn't be surprising to get one of the two to call.

      NH, WP. Dont second guess a correct move just because no one called.

      You had every reason to believe that you would get at least one caller on that turn and no reason at all to give away a free card.

      This. If anything you can try betting an amount that puts them all-in instead of shoving, it's dumb because it's effectively the same thing, but it's sometimes different for the fish to know that you didn't plain jam.


      Hope it helps.
