      What to do?

      Grabbed by Holdem Manager
      NL Holdem $0.10(BB) Replayer
      SB ($11.38)
      BB ($7.90)
      Hero ($11.97)
      UTG+1 ($10.71)
      UTG+2 ($8.84) 682 hands VP 10 call open 4%, pfr 4%, fold v cbet 71%
      MP1 ($10.09) 937 hands vp32, call open 27%, fold v cbet 52
      MP2 ($9.82) 591 hands vp 12 call open 16% fols v cbet75%
      CO ($10.89)
      BTN ($1.95)

      Dealt to Hero Q:club: Q:diamond:

      fold, Hero raises to $0.30, UTG+1 calls $0.30, UTG+2 calls $0.30, MP1 calls $0.30, fold, fold, fold, fold

      FLOP ($1.35) 5:spade: 7:spade: 4:club:

      Hero bets $1.01, UTG+1 calls $1.01, UTG+2 folds, MP1 raises to $4.29, Hero calls $3.28, UTG+1 folds

      TURN ($10.94) 5:spade: 7:spade: 4:club: A:diamond:

      Hero checks, MP1 bets $5.50 (AI), Hero folds

      MP1 wins $10.40

      I was stunned to get so many callers. Didn't really know what to do. With so many low cards I decided to cbet to hopefully get HU against only the second guy who called cause I don't think he's very good.

      I guess I should have folded to the raise.

      Should I not have Cbet and check called or check folded or something?

      Hello Edukator99,

      They ain't gonna raise you in this board without having a hand. With overpair you can easily just Bet/Fold it right on flop. No way I am going to continue there. And even if you want to continue then it's basically ship it.

      Best regards.

      So you think a bet is the best route to take? Check call 1 street maybe? Or check fold.

      These types of tables drive me nuts. If anyone has advice as to how to play a table with 3 calling stations on it let me know. Every time I raised I'd have 2-3 callers. Suddenly any pocket pair is useless as you're OOP with it in muliway pots. In late position you're looking at a bet and 1-2 callers...

      What do you do on tables like that? Play only sets or better on the flop or something?

      Check/Fold is way too weak.
      Check/Call we wont find out where we stand.
      Bet/Fold at least we know that we are very likely behind if we get raised in such a multiway pot.

      Poker ain't playing just the nuts but as well trying to play against the opponents and their ranges. There can't be a standard play for every table, I mean you always gonna adjust to every single player.

      Doesn't really matter what kind of the posts are. At least I see that you are trying to improve, which is the most important fact.

      Very standard for every poker player. They are able to win big when they have upswing but they can't avoid loosing money when they have a downswing. :( At least try to fix the leaks and avoid loosing next time.
