Hero: CO $670 :3s :3c I am one of the tighter players. Lots of limp/calling or limp folding from the table. I've been in fewer hands and I think I had only limped once at this point.

Button: $400 A Crazy Foreign Guy. Playing too many hands and paying for it, though he has won a couple pots lately.

SB: $800/$900 Pretty tight Fit-or-Fold type of guy. I hadn't seen him do much other than call pre and mostly fold post. I did not see how he got stack.

BB: $800 Loose bad player. Built his stack recently by limp calling twice with :K? :8? off and :K? :T? off and flopping a Full House and getting paid. He plans to continue his ride.

Straddle: $700 Also a bit of a fit-or-fold player but a bit looser than the SB. I saw him flip over some hands I considered questionable.

ACTION: Folds to me in the CO I make it $40. 4 players behind me and they all call. I was not expecting them all to call but perhaps I should have.

FLOP: :As :5c :2h $200

Checks around

TURN: :As :5c :2h :8c $200

SB: checks.
BB: $60
STR: Call
Hero: Call
BUT: Fold

RIVER: :As :5c :2h :8c :5d $380

SB: Checks
STR: Checks
Hero: Checks

1) Is $40 too small against this type of crowd? Or is this a spot to call pre?
2) With 4 Villains I thought the check on the Flop was ok. Yes/No?
3) I called the $60 getting a great price. However, is this a spot to raise here? BB checks and bets small. STR checks and calls.
4) After 2 checks I need to fire here right? I just didn't know what I could represent after the lines I took.

    1) As usual, it comes down to your plan. If you want to see a flop, it's going to be better to open raise, because if you limp, now the straddle can make it much more. If you wanted to reraise him it will be cheaper to have l/r range than open all hands. If you want to steal the straddle in a game full of stationy players, you can raise more, yes, but it's too late at this moment to know what that amount was, most likely, and also, you can see the contradiction in that plan. So I like 40 on the balance.

    2. If your plan was to call even a weak bet on the turn, you can see how betting the flop as a semi bluff would have been slightly better, as part of a questionable double barrel plan.

    3. Raising the turn looks good on the surface but this part of your range is probably not the spot. The problem is the action indicates weak hands but part of those are draws which will play the river better than you or make an uncallable reraise- unless there is room to blast all non spades to ensure a weak pair can't win. Looks thin.

    4. Stationy players have too many Ax hands here, but it is tempting. You could get value from a 2, possibly, or fold out 66. Maybe you are repping QQ? 65s? Better bet big if you do it.

    Thanks, as always, for the response. I was pissed at myself for what amounted to me just donating $100.
