You need to raise da flop (any arguments against?). You could end up with second or even third best made hand come the turn/river. Try and take down the pot now or at least drop some players/increase your equity.You can get away with raising more/pushing turn, good amount of hands that will come along at this point.
I wasn't sure if I had the odds
to call his raise pre. Did I?
Squeeze is pretty bad here imho since they call too lightly(when you say squeeze you mean instead of limping behind raise instead, right?)
I really wasn't sure if I should raise or not on the flop. I decided to call because I wanted a few players to be around if I hit my hand. I was planning on raising the turn if weakness was shown again and I hadn't hit.
Not sure if raise would have been good. These simply wasn't much I thought they could have, fairly dud board. In a way I was slow playing a non-made hand, a bit silly in a way.
Raising is a decent choice though; if they reraise I can shove, if they call then I can reevaluate turn. If I don't think I have much fold equity I can check behind and see a free river card. So in a way a raise on the flop is a blocker bet. + If I hit my hand it is more disguised.
It could be argued that I should try to build the pot. Not sure if that is good thinking because if they have a big hand then they'll build it for me. If they don't then they'd fold to any raise. Not sure though
How much should have I raised on the turn?
