      Should I check turn and fold river?

      Since he bets in middle position in a 5-way pot I put im on {33--55,67,A2,flushes} on the flop; or maybe but less likely {56,66}. According to this I should then check turn and check/fold river since almost all of his hands beat mine.

      Best regards

      Hello jockel80,

      Preflop: To avoid any further mistakes fold the hand preflop. :)

      As played
      Postflop: Nah, your play is fine on turn and our plan with betting the turn is to get a free showdown for us. But I don't like the Call on river, we most likely are beaten there rather than beat anything.

      Best regards.
