      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
