      Hello w4terman,

      Doubt that you can do much there while being also in a multiway pot. Nice hand!

      Best Regards.

      He showed very strong and I decided to fold because I knew he is gonna shove the river.
      What does it mean to say "he showed very strong" ?
      And what OP meant by "I knew he's gonna shove the river" ?

      Can someone explain?

      He was assuming that his UTG range is strong and there ain't many hands what he beats on the turn and doesn't make sense to Call the turn and fold the river.
