      Hi,

      I think i have a bit of a leak in wa/wb situations at nl. I'm never sure if I should be calling down or not, as if villain bets 3 streets, it adds up to most of my stack, so I often end up folding before the river.

      How should being oop against 4 opponents influence my thinking? (bet/fold?)

      The turn gives me maybe 6-8 more outs, but may complete opps draw - what if it was a blank?

      How about a blocking bet on the river?

      Hello Iolar,

      Flop: Rather Bet/Fold the flop than Check/Call.

      As played
      Turn: Likely Check/Fold, you ain't getting correct implied odds anymore.

      As played if turn was Called
      River: Check/Fold.

      Plus add to full stack. :)

      Best regards.

      Hi again,

      Trying to work on possible leak, so thinking a lot about this hand.

      If our positions were switched...

      1 - Villain checks flop - I check behind and play wawb? - to showdown?
      2 - Villain bets flop - fold? I must be ahead of a lot of his range?

      Thanks

      1. On such a dry board you can as well pick Check behind on flop since there aren't that many hands from which you get value from.
      2. Being in such a multiway pot I would likely prefer to fold it unless I consider him donking this way as well with some draws or weaker pairs.
