      Villain is unknown, although VPIP is 96% over 25 hands..

      CO: $0.60
      Hero (BTN): $2.07
      SB: $8.84

      UTG: $2.00

      Pre Flop: ($0.03) Hero is BTN with 8 :spade: 8 :diamond:
      4 folds, CO calls $0.02, Hero calls $0.02, SB calls $0.01, BB checks

      Flop: ($0.08) 2 :diamond: 6 :heart: K :club: (4 players)
      SB checks, BB checks, CO checks, Hero checks

      Turn: ($0.08) 5 :heart: (4 players)
      SB bets $0.06, BB folds, CO folds, Hero calls $0.06

      River: ($0.20) 8 :club: (2 players)
      SB bets $0.12, Hero raises to $0.50, SB raises to $0.88, Hero raises to $1.96, SB calls $1.08


      Preflop: Wasn't sure about raising, I decide to limp to see if I can hit and play for a big pot multiway.

      Flop: What do you think about betting here? I think it wouldn't be a bad idea on such a dry board especially IP.

      Turn: SB bets, I'm only behind a K, and ahead of all his draws, 5x, 6x hands, so I call.

      River: Since FD missed I think I'm good here most of the time, when he 3bets it's possible he has K6 and checked flop to induce a bet from someone else, K5, or K8 for the rivered 2pair, or 55, 66. I am only losing to 34 and 47, so I shove, would you shove here or just call?

      PF: raise for value and to pick up the blinds. Your hand is pretty strong HU versus the superloose CO.

      Flop: Bet since you probably have the best hand. Furthermore if T,J etc comes on the turn you may be outdrawn. Betting is likely to thin the field and make turns much easier to play.

      TU:WP

      Ri:Very opponent specific but calling doesn't seem too bad as putting in almost a whole stack on the river when beat hurts just too much.

      PreFlop : I think raise for value vs. 3 people ar prety silly. (no offence)


      Flop: I think bet is fine but check is better whit 3 player in the pot.

      Hello jdnismo,

      Preflop: Against CO stack I guess I wouldn't raise it. Limping is totally fine. If we raise then we practically plan to go broke against him.
      Flop: Just donk it, it's very often the case that you take down the pot right here.

      As played
      Turn: Possible to Call while he may easily even have any kind of draws/pair type of hands which you even beat.
      River: Although I am not a big fan of shipping it here. He doesn't have that many Kx hands in his range like K2/K6/K5. Only reasonable hand we might be against is some kind of set which was slowplaying. Guess myself I'd Call vs his 3bet while being in freeplay pot. Also it's not only 34/74 but also 97. :P

      Board: 2:diamond: 6:heart: K:club:  5:heart:  8:club:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      UTG    61.54%  61.54%   0.00% { 66-55, 22, K6s-K5s, K2s, 97s, 74s, 43s, 43o }
      UTG+1  38.46%  38.46%   0.00% { 8d8s }

      That's the reason why I'd rather prefer calling. :)

      Best regards.

      There is one opponent who is playing virtually ATC and another two who may not want to play for a raise. We have almost 70% equity versus the co's range and possibly dead-money to boot. I believe no silliness here.

      @ Veriz: The CO is probably playing all Kx hands.

      That might be true but he wouldn't overplay all Kx hands and just some weak pairs. :( That's just a freeplay pot.
