      you cant really r/f here, because it would cost more than half of your stack.

      potbet against 4 players gonna be better than tptk, simply fold i think is ok

      Due to bet size folding is okay, just gets you into an awkward spot on the river especially if you get there multiway. If the bet was smaller, flat and re-evaluate river, if squeezed on the turn it's a clear fold. If checked to leading half pot or slightly over is fine, after betting the turn you're getting called by worse and it's a clear fold if raised. You have decent SD value on the river so checking is viable if the pot is still multiway, if you're HU you can block bet and fold if raised.

      Hello 0744379,

      Why should it be? I mean with the raise you ain't gonna accomplish much but just donating money there. If you are going to raise then we also plan to go for stacks. Most likely against that kind of pot size bet I might even consider folding my hand while being in multiway pot. We might just beat something like KT/KQ but a lot better hands are around.

      Best Regards.
