      Hero checks, MP3 checks, CO bets $0.25, Hero raises to $0.80, 2 folds.

      Final Pot: $1.57

      Called the tiny flop bet. Guess he's giving me ok odds to hit either an A, J or Q. J may even be good.

      Now on turn I wasn't sure what to do. I'm sure I'm ahead here and if this had been heads up I would most likely call CO's bet on the turn and hope he fires again and feels commited with a K or worse J.

      On the other hand there is still MP3 to act behind me and he could very well have a draw that I don't particularly want getting 4:1 odds if I call.

      Whats best play here?

      Thanks

      Hello Jeffers16,

      The problem lies on the opponent stacks and also being in multiway pot. Although we are getting the equity but I wouldn't really put myself into hard spots, for example if we even hit our A, we still could be drawing dead because for some the A could give a straight. Just putting myself into trouble spots. I like the turn, ain't giving him odds for a Call and likely getting value from Kx type of hands.

      Best regards.3

      I think raising is fine, because its NL2 and i think there is no force in this world that would get an NL2 player to fold a top pair..:) (i've tried that many times though:f_biggrin: )
