      CO: $26.46 - VPIP: 29, PFR: 27, 3B: 15, AF: 1,1, Hands: 119
      BTN: $15.08 - VPIP: 16, PFR: 9, 3B: 3, AF: 1,0, Hands: 350
      Hero (SB): $25.85 - VPIP: 21, PFR: 18, 3B: 5, AF: 4,8, Hands: 90087
      BB: $24.17 - VPIP: 31, PFR: 23, 3B: 1, AF: 1,3, Hands: 266
      UTG: $29.41 - VPIP: 20, PFR: 15, 3B: 6, AF: 2,0, Hands: 81
      MP: $32.91 - VPIP: 21, PFR: 17, 3B: 11, AF: 5,0, Hands: 132

      Pre Flop: ($0.35) Hero is SB with 5 :heart: 5 :diamond:
      UTG raises to $0.75, MP calls $0.75, 1 fold, BTN calls $0.75, Hero calls $0.65, 1 fold

      Flop: ($3.25) A :spade: 5 :club: 6 :heart: (4 players)
      Hero checks, UTG checks, MP bets $2.50, BTN calls $2.50, Hero raises to $7, UTG folds, MP folds, BTN folds

      So I am in a 4way pot with somewhat thinking opponents.

      The check/raise line is obviously too strong and easy to read so I suppose I should have check/called.

      1) If we check/call the flop, what is the most likely line we could take on the turn vs relatively unknown regs?
      Donkbet?
      Check/call?

      Hello Avatars91,

      Check/Raising is clearly making a lot of hands to fold, mainly included also Ax hands. I'd just donk out the flop and pick the Bet size myself and would be able to Bet the turn & river. With this you also avoid kicking out all weak hands which are Ax and may even get called from looser opponents.

      Best Regards.

      Is check/calling the flop also doable?

      @Veriz - Would you do the same if there was a big fish in the pot as well? Or if all opponents looked a bit weaker?

      Why are you trying to excuse your play out? :D You wont mate. :P Just try to think a bit and you will understand that Check/Calling ain't really good idea. I could even point out just once thing which is enough for not doing it -> we don't want them to see pot controlling turn.

      As said I would be donking major of the time here cause Check/Raising may scare away a lot weaker Ax hands. Whilst fish will pay with them.
