      Howdy,

      I would usually just give it up on flop. I think at least one of them will have Qx or even better too often.
      Reasoning for cbetting is that they all limp/called pre and I don't expect their ranges be really strong here, but they may still have worse hands that can improve if we just give it up, although limp/calling means they have pretty much 55/88 in their ranges aswell.

      As played with cbetting it's fine. We can't continue here.

      Good luck!
