      On flop, 2 villains c and I also did c.
      On turn, they also did c so I thought I can get this pot so I bet.
      However 1 villain called.

      On river, what can I did?

      Hello Gonchan,

      Well, the problem is that we very likely are against station-line opponents. :D Will we ever make a draw or a pair to fold here? For that given reason I might even not try to take stabs into multi way pot. Ax is in their range and rather just Check behind and be happy if you even get free showdown.

      Also you can still take even tabs on further streets. The problem if you bet the turn is that you also have to consider sometimes even bet the river to get rid of some kind of weaker pairs. But what kind of opponent are we against? Are we able to do that?

      Best regards.
