      Hi clandestineAl,

      With 4 players on the flop and a drawy board, I would certainly bet at least pot. Turn is a very nasty card, and betting is ok, since you still beat some hands that could call. The raise you're facing then is just horrible and unless he's some spewy bluffy maniac type of guy, I would fold.
      On the other hand, I can't see him do this with a flush either, since it's sooo obvious. Most players tend to slowplay or raise small in these situations on the low limits, but this is very read dependant...

      This is indeed a very nasty spot, so I don't blame you for folding, but I'd like to hear what the coaches have to say about this hand :)

      Good luck at the tables!

      -Manuel

      It is a bad spot but a good fold imo.

      I think on the flop you should bet about $0.15 just to get maximum value, the board isn't that wet so protection isn't the first and foremost here. The turn is a bad spot, the bet is fine as hands such as Kx can still call. When he raises I think you have to make a crying fold here as he's more than likely got you beat.

      It's a good fold from you there, a lot of people at NL2 (Me included when I was there) just can't find it in their heart to fold their set. Well played.
