      Hello Oly0909,

      Since no worse will anyways Call on flop or either bet, I guess I'd just Check/Fold it even on flop. Although if you are somewhat scared that they might do that then block-betting there is fine.

      Best regards.

      Why no worse hands could call here? Straight and flush draws are posible here or i miss something in stats. From stats it looks that opponents are loose and could have wide hand range but they are not going to showdown very often and not bluffing on river much.
      If Oly0909 check flop and opponents checks behind, what about betting the turn card in this situation? (delayed cbet). And if one opponent calls betting small on river (thin value) and fold to raise because like i sad before opponents wont be bluffing much in these spots.

      Yeah, of course there is FD/SD possible to Call but I wanted to say that rather just Check and take pot control. They are often trying to take the free card anyways with draws while being in such a multiway pot. And if they all Check there we can likely bet the turn. And as well when they do have the Ace there, they are willing to protect themselves.
