      Preflop: Hero is CO with J:heart: , 9:heart:
      2 folds, MP1 calls $0,02, MP2 folds, MP3 calls $0,02, Hero calls $0,02, 2 folds, BB checks.

      Flop: ($0,09) Q:heart: , T:club: , 5:spade: (4 players)
      BB checks, MP1 checks, MP3 checks, Hero checks.

      Turn: ($0,09) K:diamond: (4 players)
      BB checks, MP1 checks, MP3 checks, Hero bets $0,08, 3 folds.

      Final Pot: $0,17

      The king completes my straight but I've got to be careful because I'm on the lower end of the straight. If someone gets aggressive I'll have to fold. I think I should bet against 4 opponents but how much?

      Thanks in advance,

      Hello DesertStingray,

      Well, actually you can easily even take a stab right on flop while you definitely even have fold equity there + your equity is good enough.

      As played I doubt that I would fold directly there, at least Call the raise if even would face a raise. But most likely they wont slowplay that long their nut-straights.

      Best Regards.
