      mm I don't like raising on the flop against two players. It will be very hard for them to call with something worse. I prefer calling down.

      Hi,


      I like the flop raise, none of them really indicated strength yet, for all we know they have worse Tx/7x/65/hearts/random gutshots hands that they will donk/chase with, it's a clear value raise for us.

      The turn is a bit more dicey, 7x now beats us and the board paired so it's a bit less likely people will chase draws. We'd probably need a better read on SB to know for sure whether raising again there is good/best, but I can tell you it's by no mean horrible in any case without further information.

      Just learn what you can from the showdown and adjust next time against this player based on what he took that line with.


      Hope it helps.
