      Flop: ($2.8) J, 5, J (3 players)
      SB checks, MP1 checks, Hero checks.

      Turn: ($2.8) J (3 players)

      Final Pot: $23.89.


      FLOP: Don't like the idea of Cbetting a multiway pot with such a board.

      TURN: I thought some one with a flush draw would have bet out. and with the third J it makes it unlikely someone has it, so i bet to steal. Is this bad, as with such a card we often get called with PP's?

      RIVER: Self explanatory :coolface:


      Results follow:

      Hero shows a full-house, jacks full of aces(Kc Ac).
      MP1 shows four of a kind, jacks(Td Jd).

      Hero wins with a full-house, jacks full of aces(Kc Ac).
      MP1 wins with four of a kind, jacks(Td Jd).

      Hello gxtwo,

      Why do you Bet the turn even? What kind of hands do you make to fold there? :) Snap-Check on the turn for me.

      As played, while even being in multiway pot I wouldn't be surprised to see the J there. Not gonna happen that often that people float the turn with just Ax high. Of course it's gonna happen if opponent is loose but he could still even trap with the Jx which is very likely. But now again it's gonna be hard to get away for the given odds. You played it already wrong on turn and should fix your play there.

      Best Regards.

      I realize now this was a bad move, do i only isolate my self against PP's and possible flush draws far too often?
