      Villain: 21/17 3bet: 5.1
      WTSD: 26%
      W$SD%: 53%
      Raise flop cbet: 15%

      Reason for me calling flop despite that it's 4-way is because I just don't see him play this way very often with 55,66 (which are very few combos) when he's got position on me.

      The turn makes it even less likely, but I guess I just couldn't fail to notice that it was 4-way. But, I find his play a bit odd, and somehow quite bluffy.

      But I decided that since I don't want to call river, and I will defo be commited here should I call, I'd be better off just folding on the turn.

      I still think I should've called flop because it's just so odd that I expect him to give up his bluff most of the time consideirng the fact that it was still 4-way.

      so, bet/call, check/fold as played?

      Hello axelphoney,

      Don't really see any reason to Bet/Call the flop and then Check/Fold the turn, it's just going to be waste of money. Instead we should Bet/Fold right on the flop then instead than Call it. His range may easily be even A5/A6 or whatsoever so if we fold then do it on the flop. Or otherwise Call the turn also.

      Best Regards.
