i know i should have raised more pre with two fish still to act (BTN and SB), that would have helped to narrow down the field a bit. the only stats i had on the CO
was he'd folded the first 6 hands. when he raises on the river i know I'm beat. but I'm wondering if i could have lost less in the hand.
in a multiway pot since there are more players there is more chance that someone flops something strong. does this mean you should in general play top pair hands much slower and not go for three streets of value (like you would in a heads up pot)? I'm wondering if my bet was a bit ambitious by the river and maybe i should have just x/f by that point?
let me know what you guys think, i would appreciate any advice since multiway pots aren't my strength
