      Preflop - should I raise there or limping was ok ?
      Flop don't know, I was going to raise if it was checked to me, but his raise, not sure if I have to reraise it or calling was fine. Turn completes a draw, but I dont see him raising SD on flop. River is perfect for me I think, I was mainly scared from stupid two pairs on the flop, but as I beat them now, I went AI. I was almost 100% sure he will call me here with any pair. I saw him doing some crazy stuff in other hands, and he is also too loose preflop. Maybe my play is a little bit slowplaying, don't know if it is the best line here.

      Pre-flop: raise! You don't wanna play a 6 way pot or w/e KQo... KQo is a trash hand unless you can raise it pre-flop & play it with initiative post flop. So calling is the worst option here... folding isn't great either cause your hand is good enough for a raise. Raise > fold > call.

      Flop is fine as played. Raising here would be overplayed, you don't wanna go broke with TPGK in multiway limped pot.

      Turn: ok

      River: Call it down. You're gonna valuetown yourself against better like this. If he has a worse Queen just be happy that you didn't lose the hand imo >.>

      Agreed up to the river. If villain can play Qx like that and can't fold it there is nothing wrong with value raising that river. It's a bit thin, but his line doesn't look very strong at all unless he just bets smallish on the river with everything.


      Hope it helps.
