I def don't like popping the flop. You've got yourself three huckleberries with a good draw and overs (given that he didn't have the str8). Call for the draw and build it when you hit. With three people in this seemingly loose game, you're getting paid. I wouldn't worry too much about a higher FD. Call flop, bet/raise the turn and take it down. NH

Preflop - i think a raise on the button with JThh to 20/25 would have been better than a limp...but i know how much everyone like limping in live games

Flop - The hand would have been easier to play if you took the lead preflop, bc if someone bet into you (have to be 40-60$), you would make a standard raise, which would committ yourself anyways...or if it was checked to you, you would make a pot sized bet and be priced into a shove.

I still dont mind how you played the hand as limped, however, i think you would have a lot more fold equity on the flop if you raised preflop

raise pre to build the pot with J10s OTB.
As played I hate the flop raise alot, ubless you are nutted with the flush draw or have another draw i hate raising here.
Obv call when he shoves
You are really overrepping your hand on the flop its ok to slow down sometimes and just peel.

Depends totally on if SB is a solid player to lead into the field, or he has Q8 and wants to see what is up. Live you can pretty much eliminate the callers from having anything decent, so it is your read on the SB. If he is a donk, then raise it up. Calling allin is fine there with the pot odds. No the fact that he moved in doesn't change the way you played the hand. If he isn't solid, it is still a +ev play given that he will fold a large majority of the time.
