      SB: $14.94
      BB: $9.13
      UTG: $21.18
      MP: $10.62
      CO: $4.41
      Hero (BTN): $12.16

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is BTN with 4 :club: 5 :club:
      3 folds, Hero raises to $0.20, SB calls $0.15, BB calls $0.10

      Flop: ($0.60) 2 :club: 7 :heart: 7 :diamond: (3 players)
      SB checks, BB checks, Hero bets $0.45, SB calls $0.45, BB folds

      Turn: ($1.50) J :spade: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $1.00, SB calls $1

      River: ($3.50) 8 :spade: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $2.20

      c-betting to take it down right there, villain(s) rarely hit this flop, and if they have pps/floats i can push them of on later streets.

      I bet the J because its a good scarecard. Many floats will fold to a 2nd barrel and pps will be a bit scared of the J.

      the 8 is a relative blank. I guess 9T hit its straight but thats it. So I decide to continue my story and bet a 3-rd barrel and try to push him of any PP or overcards that floated.

      BB: $14.87
      UTG: $9.98
      MP: $10.00
      CO: $13.67
      BTN: $3.44
      Hero (SB): $11.36

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is SB with A :diamond: K :heart:
      UTG raises to $0.40, 3 folds, Hero calls $0.35, BB calls $0.30

      Flop: ($1.20) 2 :heart: 5 :diamond: 9 :heart: (3 players)
      Hero checks, BB checks, UTG checks

      Turn: ($1.20) 9 :club: (3 players)
      Hero bets $0.80, BB calls $0.80, UTG folds

      River: ($2.80) Q :spade: (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.80

      I decided to call AK from the sb because i think its a good enough hand to play OOP vs UTG, i think a 3-bet will only scare away the hands i dominate(except AQs), and thereby isolating myslef vs a storng UTG range.

      The flop checks through and another 9 hits. I bet here representing 66-88, TT-QQ trying to push out PP's and some 45,56 type of hands.

      BB which is pretty loose, but with a WTS of 17% call my bet and the river brings a Q. I decide to bet again given that this card is pretty scary for all pocket pairs which I'm aming to push off the hand.

      BTN: $3.20
      SB: $9.21
      Hero (BB): $11.78
      UTG: $11.44
      CO: $14.34

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is BB with 9 :spade: Q :spade:
      1 fold, CO raises to $0.30, 2 folds, Hero raises to $0.95, CO calls $0.65

      Flop: ($1.95) 8 :diamond: 2 :heart: 5 :diamond: (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.30, CO calls $1.30

      Turn: ($4.55) 6 :club: (2 players)
      Hero bets $3.00

      Villain is a reg, typical tag stats. I 3-bet him since his stealing a bit. I dont think Q9s is good enough to call so i decide to 3-bet instead.

      When he calls i give him a medium strength range. like 99-JJ, AQo, AJs, KQs. The flop doesnt hit his range very hard. So i decide to c-bet even though i can't represent much more than overpairs and overcards + FD's. Given the fact that i cant represent much i think he is going to float relatively often here.

      Therefore i decide to 2nd barrel to get him off his overcards and also maybe just maybe some of his overpairs since the board is getting drawier. I also have a gutshot now + a Q vs some of his PPs.

      What do you guys think of my reasoning in the hands? I'm pretty new to mutibarrels so I'm trying my best to learn playing a more abusing game vs regs.

      Hello RainbowPonny,

      First of all, please don't post more than one hand into 1 thread. We can just basically concentrate on just one hand and write a better analyze. You can always link the hands but don't post them all into one thread. :(

      Hand #1
      Don't expect the opponent to fold there any hand, therefore Check/Fold right on flop in multiway. As played Check back river.

      Hand #2
      Doesn't make sense at all. Basically I'd just Check it down and be happy if I win.

      Hand #3
      Seems to be fine vs somewhat thinking opponent.

      Best regards.
