      This was 3 handed? Doesn't really matter that much, but by c-reraising you're basically announcing that you have a monster, so it might be better to lead out.

      Hi gutshotstraightdraw!

      I also think you should bet out and hope to get raised. Check/raise is also an option but after a bet and a raise that looks really strong. On the other hand it is possible that at least one of these guys calls you. So I wouldn't say you played it wrong. Both plays bet/raise and check/raise are good.

      Good luck at the tables!
