      Play hand

      $0.25/$0.5 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Known players:
      MP3 (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with 7, 6.
      UTG1 folds, UTG2 calls $0.50, 2 folds, Hero raises to $2.50, CO calls $2.50, BU calls $2.50, 2 folds, UTG2 calls $2.00.

      Flop: ($10.75) 3, 2, 6 (4 players)
      UTG2 checks, Hero bets $8.00, CO folds, BU calls $8.00, UTG2 calls $8.00.

      Turn: ($34.75) 4 (3 players)
      UTG2 checks, Hero checks, BU checks.

      River: ($34.75) 4 (3 players)
      UTG2 checks, Hero checks, BU checks.

      Final Pot: $34.75.

      I would have liked if at least both players behind me had folded; unfortunately one calls and I'm left sandwiched on the Turn with a nasty looking 4. I didn't know how to act on this street.

      I wasn't worried that much about someone having a 5, but more about someone having 77+. I didn't know if to Ch/C and try pot control or if to bet for protection against the flush or another connected card.

      Since BU just checked behind, I assumed he did not have an overpair. However, what hands was I expecting to pay me if I bet the River? Certainly not pairs of deuces or threes. I can only think of fours, fives and overpairs like 77 or 88 (and two pairs or sets of course). So I checked and expected a free showdown.

      I'm quite confused about this hand.

      yo´re likely not winning too often at the showdown, but at the same time you can´t bet for value since better hands won´t really fold. Since it is 4-way I´d c/f turn and c/f river. Don´t think they have there too often draws and you would fold the best hand
