      Preflop: Hero is CO with A:heart: , K:spade:
      UTG2 folds, MP1 calls $0,02, 2 folds, Hero raises to $0,10, BU calls $0,10, 2 folds, MP1 calls $0,08.

      Flop: ($0,33) 8:spade: , 8:diamond: , 2:spade: (3 players)
      MP1 checks, Hero checks, BU checks.

      Turn: ($0,33) A:club: (3 players)
      MP1 checks, Hero bets $0,24, BU calls $0,24, MP1 calls $0,24.

      River: ($1,05) J:spade: (3 players)
      MP1 checks, Hero bets $0,5, BU raises to $0,55 (All-In), MP1 raises to $1,59 (All-In), Hero folds.

      Final Pot: $3,69

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      MP1 shows a flush, ace high (As 9s)
      BU shows (Ad 4h)

      MP1 wins with a flush, ace high (As 9s)

      On the flop I wasn't sure if I should cbet or not.

      On the river I decided to bet/fold. But now I realize that BU has a smallish stake and maybe I should have played check/call. What do you think? Thanks.

      Hello Elertar,

      Well, the river card ain't of course the best for us while we are even in multiway pot. They may easily even hold the FD there. Although there might be still value from Ax hand therefore I don't even mind the bet on river for 1/2($0,55 put the BU all-in) pot size bet. But I wouldn't Call the all-in either.

      Best regards.
