      Nice pot! Would just call preflop because two minraises look suspicious. To ignore one minraise is ok...but two? I don't think so.

      Well my reasoning went like this. As I didnt give the minraises all that much respect I thought that to try to take it to heads up would be better than a 3way, obviously it didnt work out in that manner of sense. Secondly I still wouldnt have known where I stood if the original minraiser decided to minraise yet again and I wouldve just put more money into the pot without getting information about their hands at all. Ofc I thought that at least one of them could very well have a good hand but that was what I was trying to find out. Perhaps not a good play, but I will have to keep that in mind for next time in that case.

      Hi snowylee!

      I think it's a good idea to raise these minraises. Don't give them any respect. If you are getting another minraise you have an easy fold because someone is obviously slowplaying a monster. But if not, you will most likely take down the pot or play heads-up - which is your goal. Postflop it's an easy decision. Nice hand!

      Good luck at the tables!
