      I really was like wtf, how should I play this hand during the session,I wasn't that attentive that it actually was a 5-way pot as I was like 10-12 tabling at that moment.
      Question 1: Should I bet on flop, or should I check/call?
      Question 2: The passive fish starts betting into me on turn, so I was thinking like wtf he could have there?Set?Flopped flush??QJ?
      I was thinking during the hand that I might be drawing dead against Ahigh flush, and against set for my two pair,trips.
      I still find a late fold,which I think is good.

      Pretty ugly hand,I misplayed it imo.
      Some feedback is highly appreciated.
      I need some light here.

      Hello h0m1e,

      Preflop: Actually I don't really like the Call here, since we really don't want to face a multiway pot with such type of hands, rather play them in headsup. Therefore I might even prefer to fold it.

      As played
      Flop: Yeah, likely being in such a multiway pot, I'd rather prefer to Check behind and hopefully see a free showdown or decide whether I bet it on turn or not.

      As played if Flop was Bet
      Turn: He could any kind of hand have there, as you mentioned sets/flushes etc and likely even such lines are often pretty strong and you might even consider folding it here to avoid any further mistakes for example flush comes or K comes or even another Q comes, we would put just ourself into hard decisions when he decides to shove. We also show aggression on flop, and he should be aware of that we are having a hand but still decides to donk which is a strong line.

      As played if Turn was Called
      River: Yeah, likely better to fold.

      Best regards.
