      NL 25 playing SSS stack was $4

      I just wasn't prepared to call this with so many opponents

      Poker Stars
      No Limit Holdem Ring game
      Blinds: $0.10/$0.25
      9 players
      Converter

      Pre-flop: (9 players) Hero is BB with 8 K
      UTG folds, UTG+1 calls, MP1 folds, MP2 calls, MP3 folds, CO calls, Button folds, SB calls, Hero checks.

      Flop: 4 7 8 ($1.25, 5 players)
      SB bets $0.25, Hero folds, UTG+1 raises to $1, 3 folds.
      Uncalled bets: $0.75 returned to UTG+1.

      Results:
      Final pot: $1.75

      Correct imo. with 5 players at the pot and the very drawy flop, folding was correct.

      I have learned this lesson the hard way (at least twice)

      hmm, I need some time to think about it, quite confusing me) I posted this one in russian forum, so we can discuss it with their hand judge.

      Or maybe I am just to sleepy))) Anyway, I leave it for a while.

      Against 4 players your only option would be to go All-In to have enough fold equity. But any 2 Pair and Set will call you. Maybe even an OESD and FD or any combinated Draw will call you here. That minbet from SB could be just a blockbet to get to the turn very cheaply with his draw or he has a really good hand.

      So I would fold here as well, since its a to marginal situation to risk my whole stack here.

      SB is betting with a marginal hand and MP callers would likely bet higher sets pre-flop. The only concern is UTG. However, against 4 players it is an easy fold.
