      I feel completly destroyed by my opponent. His calls was immediate. I was afraid of pocket pair. He risked a lot to see his river 4. What do you think about my and his game?

      First, I am suprised by his pre-flop call. I think he wanted some risk and try flush-draw.

      Second, he gains straight-draw. Flush-draw is only theoretically. He calls very quick, so I think he wanted to even bet all to get to showdown.

      I can't imagine so risky game as he showed... Simply, I am destroyed...

      He is a calling station and u were unlucky. I would check turn here, u'r out of position and u hold marginal hand against 2 players (with no draw), I would also check/fold the river since some draws completed and u dont even have top pair no worse hand would call u here, so by betting u can only loose.

      Hi lookazh!

      I would bet more on the flop (at least $2.50) to narrow the field. You don't want to see an overcard and taking down the pot on the flop isn't a bad outcome. As played I would check the turn and even check/fold the river because only better hands call your bet.

      Good luck at the tables!

      About your play: maybe just completing pf and playing for set value wouldn't have been such a bad decision, as there were so many limpers behind you and you are in the worst possible position. I don't like to play hand like 99 OOP against 2 opponents to a big pot.

      about villain's play: with OESD I would've raised to a rainbow flop and play it like I hit my set.
