      According to his starting stack size he looks fishy. I think he's capable of calling with Tx, J9-JT 75s-78s, 89, Qx, 88 - 99. Basically we're betting for value. Everything's good on the river, you're both pot commited.

      I personally won't isolate preflop with KJ from SB since I would be OOP postflop, moreover 3 limpers are not 100bb deep and I won't feel comfortable calling one of their shove(if decide to go crazy with 55 or something similiar).

      Hello Gloryne,

      Well, being in such a multiway pot I'd rather just complete and play my hand postflop than raise it. We will play OOP so often and most likely even in multiway pot. Rather avoid such spots.

      As played obviously not much to add, we can't Check/Fold the river anyways for the given stack sizes. But while he could still even hold worse pairs which we beat and by Checking he will just Check behind.

      Best regards.
