      Hi dErlUxEr,

      In an unraised pot a top pair isn't enough to win, especially with the lowest kicker. I wouldn't raise the flop i think you'd be inflating the pot unnecessarily, as top pair lowest kicker is very weak against 4 opponents. Anyone of them with overcards could continue to play and hit something. Plus the flop has a straight draw and people might call.

      Turn completes a straight, another indication that your top pair low kicker is worthless. So when he raises your Bet on the turn you should fold without even thinking about it. He invested a blind pre-flop whats he gonna get from bluffing here, he has absolutely no motivation to do so in my opinion. And you're not getting outs for your flush-draw either.

      i wanted to protect my top-pair after the flop.. i tought, that there will fold after a over-potsize bet. i guess, that i have to check/fold at the turn.

      i folded after the all-in raise.. one step too late!! :f_cry:

      If you wanted to protect your hand then I don't think the bet on the turn was required. Draws have completed. Its best to Check/Fold on the turn and save the 12 blinds. Why do you wanna get stuck in such marginal situations 9 Pair with 2 kicker is just not worth the 18 blinds you invested. Besides people limped in, anyone could have anything.

      Hello dErlUxEr,

      If you even Bet the turn then it should be Bet/Fold, you don't beat much there anymore as he shoves. Rather take the passive approach and let him have the pot while we are in freeplay pot.

      Best Regards.
