      I didn´t want to limp in, so I decided to raise on BU. I think it is good because:
      -I have the initiative
      -I have position
      -no-one puts me on T8s, so I could win a very bog pot with my straight/flush/trips
      - If blinds fold, then UTG limper might also fold (although he mostly has small pocket pairs, so it doesn´t matter what kind of flop comes, he would check/fold if he don´t hit his set.

      Then SB wakes up and almost min-reraises. SB calls, so I have to call for pot odds. Flop is quite nice. Should I take the shot, because both players showed weakness not betting, also if I hit my flush I could make larger value bet. I called turn for flush value. Not sure that either. i have already bad experience, if I hit my nut flush and lost to the full house.

      Would only call on the BU. If everyone folded to you on the BU you could raise, but in this spot just limp. Flop/turn and river play is fine because you don't want to get check/raised.

      Hi Kaitz20!

      As gutshotstraightdraw already mentioned: except from the preflop play (limp would be better) I think you played this hand well. There is no need to be more aggressive against two opponents in a reraised pot. You are in position: take your free card.

      Good luck at the tables!
