      very tricky flop and one of the hardest to play i think...

      your bet looks fine to me but almost half of the deck its a bad card.
      The best part of the hand is that you have position which is even more important in these situations

      there easy could be a hand like pair and the nut flush draw in there hand range even a made flush in a 4way pot.

      whould be very interesting to see the turn and what veriz has to say about this one :D

      i am sure you have stop the hand in the flop for a good reason :P

      Hello Tomaloc,

      We can't really go for pot control here, instead rather just bet yourself and protect your hand, will be happy if you even take it down. And of course we Bet/Fold it.

      Best Regards.

      i stopped it there because everyone folded :D indeed i was happy

      if we get like two callers how much do we bet (if at all) in something like a 2? i'd most likely be going for half pot :f_cry:

      We should be betting again of course, we still could easily be ahead and need protect our hand. And half pot should be fine.
