      BB showed K A and lost (-$1.97 net)

      10/4/ AF 0.6/ WTSD 11, small sample like 70 hands

      Plan preflop was simple, I give up hand if I don't hit a draw or 2 pairs+. Flop gave me 2 top pairs, so I checked/raise it. I feel like it was a better option than call, cause probability that someone hit this flop too in multiway is pretty big + I had a bigger pot on turn so I could get more value. I could also lead it, but I didn't think about it in that time :P River scared me a little, but I would had to call his bet anyway, so I just did it by myself.

      I have no idea on what range I can put him, since it's nearly limped pot, so he can easily have every hand there.

      So I have 2 questions to this hand:

      - Lead, call, or check/raise flop? Every option has it own pros and cons, so I don't really know which one is best in this 4way pot.

      - Sizing of raise on flop. I know how preflop sizings should look, but I have no idea how much I should raise someone postflop. It probably depends on board structure, but I'm interested in this spot.

      Thankssss :)

      Hello Friedric,

      Raise pot size on the flop even than so smallish. But otherwise not much to comment for the given stack left, difficult to fold anyways so therefore instead just ship it & get value from Ax.

      Best Regards.
