      Hi all,
      I have several questions on this hand.
      I do not have specific info on any players, all I know is that the game is a bit crazy.

      1) Did I raise enough preflop to achieve what I wanted to do (i.e narrow the number of players)
      2) How is my bet post flop (20 would have been better)?
      3) Should I fold when I get check reraised?

      Thanks,
      Max

      #1 - wiht raiser and three callers I like making it around 8 preflop.

      #2 - There are some draws and a lot of players on the flop. I like it 25.

      #3 - No. You need 19% to call and most often you will have them. It is considered that TPTK in 3bet pot is nuts (even though it is thought that in 3bet pots there won't be 6 players LOL).

      Your 3bet is waaaaay to small. Your 3bet here should be arround ~$9.00 (3xinitial raise + 1x per caller). You should never make your 3bet less then $8.00 in this spot at least.

      On the flop I'm definitely not happy with just TPTK with 6 players still in the pot... at least the board isn't A74 or something which would be even more dangerous for sets. I am also playing bet/all-in here but yeah... imo it's a spot you should never end up in.
