      UTG ($3.94) 99bb
      UTG+1 ($5.02) 126bb
      HERO (CO) ($4) 100bb
      BTN ($1.73) 43bb
      SB ($2.12) 53bb
      BB ($4.16) 104bb

      Pre-Flop: ($0.06, 6 players) HERO is CO 8:spade: 8:heart:
      UTG raises to $0.08, UTG+1 calls $0.08, HERO calls $0.08, 1 fold, SB calls $0.06, 1 fold

      Flop: 4:heart: J:club: 4:spade: ($0.36, 4 players)
      SB checks, UTG checks, UTG+1 checks, HERO checks

      Turn: 6:spade: ($0.36, 4 players)
      SB bets $0.26, 1 fold, UTG+1 raises to $0.68, HERO folds, SB folds

      UTG=43/14, AF:16, CB:33, 28h,
      *OR 2bb w/ KQo @ CO, c-b 1/2 w/ 2nd pair

      CO=35/13, AF:4, 24h
      *raises OL to 6bb w/ QQ IP, cbets 1/2 w/ overpair HU, cks turn 3flush w/ overpair, leads 3bb river A

      Question is: flat or squeeze? If I squeeze, MP probably will fold, but UTG OR range is pretty small and I don`t think he will call with much worse. Then again, by squeezing I would gain initiative IP and could profitably c-bet smaller boards, knowing that OPP will fold all overcards.

      By calling I`m basically set-mining multi-way. I think, this is a good option, also there were not any aggressive players behind me.

      I guess, I had to bet on the flop for protection. I think 55-77 would call, even some broad-ways. My bet would thinner the field, and I might go to showdown.

      Hello dienaszaglis,

      Bet the flop as nobody shows interest into the flop, though otherwise not much to comment. :) Flatting though is also standard.

      Best Regards.

      Agreed a reason to bet the flop would be for protection.

      Looking at equilator, we are ahead about 40% of the time now, and 30% of the time by the river against the expected ranges (I entered top 20% / 25% / 30% of hands as ranges).

      It seems a little more complex to me however as multi-way you know that if you do get called your very likely to be way behind and with only two 'outs' in the deck.

      Where I can only get called by hands that beat me, but my hand has showdown value, I often take a view that checking may be best.

      Is it personal preference for you to bet there, or based on maximum EV?
