    Don't see much wrong with the way you played it. There should be plenty of sets there and we at least have a blocker to better straights and we don't block 2 pair hands. I like your SB complete I think implied odds should be okay enough but not totally sure, I think a full BB to se a flop would be questionable. Only thing I am not sure about is if we should bet out, we have worst position and I don't like boards pairing and people catching runner runner flush and 4 but aside from that there is not much we are afraid of. Depends on opponents I guess, not sure there is enough action in limped 5 way pot.

    So well played overall, just unlucky. No reason to get tilted, in MTT there will be month that feel like that but also better month when you get rewarded for good play. So just keep at it.

    Also may I ask what kind of MTT that is, fieldsize and speed?

    Hi Neo,

    Yeah pretty standard complete for me here, to try and flop some 2 pair or this flop:?

    I think donk is probably the best play 5 way, we get value from sets, pair+gutshot, ANY overpairs.

    These tourneys are extremely spewy, it was a 7.50pko, if anyone has any peace of this they aren't going anywhere, especially if they have me covered for the bounty.

    Every playeer in this pot was pretty weak, 60/10's, 70/30 types just playing everyhand basically as u see with mr 46s:clap:

    field was maybe 2-2500ish. I think only thing i did wrong in this hand was just call the raise even tough we have the nuts basically 99% of the time. I think just shipping flop once he raises to get it in vs his sets and overpairs like 77-99 which they like to limp alot.

    After board pair we have invested to much with half our stack to ever fold against such players, its not a great turn but def one we have to still get it in as it also cuts down his combo's of sets.
