Well done

when he checked the turn, then shoved on the river, i was in his pocket

BTW ii know what i did wrong. the min raise, preflop, should have been at least 3BB.
the raise, post flop, should have screamed 2pr, or set, but for some reason i saw it as a semi-bluff, with him chasing the same draw that i was. the turn and river solidified what i already believed. this tunnel vision problem is costing me chips, making me fall for tactics i use on others, and will be fixed. i did think V did a pretty good job of reeling me in, though.

Don’t get in this habit of putting V’s on draws that you block heavily.

Well you did accurately point out this mistake. Is this a leak, something you do a lot, if it is consciously work on stopping that. You’re just guaranteeing that you’ll be playing a lot of super multi-way hands in bloated pots. I don’t think 3 bb’s is big enough over 3 limpers. I’d be either going to 5-6 bb’s or over limping with the raise being my first choice.

Sounds like you jumped on the hook and swam up to the boat. V gets credit for going fishing in the first place though.

You needed the 7c9c there.
