It wasn't a bad raise pre-flop dorkus, just the minimal... think about it this way.. you raise miminal... that hand normally works better multi-pot..
A raise with 2 more callers in a way puts more people in the pot..
3 people at .25 makes it 3 people..
3 people at $1.50 makes it 6 people in the pot...
basically the raise makes more more people in the pot even though there isn't people in the pot giving the correct odds
to play the hand.
So by raising the minimum and hoping the other 2 will call does put 2 others in the pot even though there is only 2 with you. Sounds screwy granted but I have done this before myself... I looked said I got sooted connectors with 2 others in the pot,, thought wait a minute here.. time to raise the mimimum at least to give me the right amount of people to play such a hand
