      Hi Gerv!

      At first, I wanted to isolate the passive player at MP. however I got called by a lot of players. Since I ended up in multiway pot with combodraw, I decided to Cbet and eventually ship. On the turn I decided to shove because the pot is very big and if I check and he would bet I will have to call but the call would be pretty break even pot odds wise.

      Do you think that my play was appropriate on all streets?

      You had a combo draw: Gutshot + Flush Draw

      IMO nice hand :s_thumbsup:

      EDIT: I only think you should have bet 3/4 pot on the flop 0.80 and then All-In

      Hi,
      one question, what is are the Stats you posted? VPIP/PFR/?
      Normally your line should be good with your Combodraw, but as BrunoPradoBR already said 0,8$ are enough on the Flop.

      Hi there,


      this is VPIP/PFR/3bet. Both players have a bit bigger 3 bet value:)

      I bet such flops a bit bigger because there are lot of draws and also I´m multiway.

      Your line is fine but i wanna bring up your betsizing, there no point in betting like 90c OTF in a muti way pot, id bet like 50-60c OTF to give myself a bigger turn bet and encourage more players to call to get max value off my hand.

      If you had a made hand you d want to bet bigger to protect it, and if it was heads up you d wanna get as much money in OTF as possible as your gunna be in very good shape vs any made hand(apart from maybe sets) and to maximum FEQ to get your opponents to fold made hands as your equity decreases OTT if yu dont hit.

      However, this is irrelevent as your rarely getting all your opponents to fold in this mutiway pot OTF, so your best bet is to bet smaller, maybe encourage more callers and give yourself a bigger bet for more FEQ OTT. Your committed on any turn anyways so.

      With an Ace you can bet bigger to protect. With a draw bet a little bit lower in this multiway Pot. You haven't to protect, because if you hit your Draws, you should normally have the best hand.
