      fold, fold, fold, Hero raises to $0.80, fold, fold, BTN calls $0.80, fold, BB calls $0.55
      i raise because there are some fishy players behind.
      both callers are relatively unknown but fishy-ish

      BB checks, Hero checks, BTN bets $2.00, BB calls $2.00, fold
      here i wanted to turn my hand into bluffcatcher/induce lighter calls since my kicker is not that good but when the pretty big bet actually came and there was even a caller i was afraid to call ;(
      lol? :f_biggrin:

      better to just bet myself? then couldn't see a lot of worse hands calling.

      Since I would c-bet that board 100% of my range I don´t really like c/c myself, since if BU really wants then he can get off my hand taking bet/bet/shove line, since he knows I can maximum hold there weak Ax hand.
      Most of the times BU just checks behind and takes his free card to hit his boat that could easily cost a lot of money to you. So I would bet there for value and protection.
      Ofcourse if you have reads If BU/BB is maniac and would barrel off with no equity then c/c him down is also fine.
      Against bet and call I would also likely fold my hand, since it is more likely someone has there better Ax hand

      best regards,
