      Hero (BTN): $27.74 - VPIP: 21, PFR: 18, 3B: 5, AF: 4,8, Hands: 90087
      SB: $19.45 - VPIP: 35, PFR: 24, 3B: 7, AF: 8,0, Hands: 119

      CO: $18.34 - VPIP: 62, PFR: 30, 3B: 20, AF: 1,4, Hands: 69

      Pre Flop: ($0.35) Hero is BTN with J :heart: T :heart:
      1 fold, MP raises to $0.75, CO calls $0.75, Hero calls $0.75, 1 fold, BB raises to $3.85, MP calls $3.10, CO calls $3.10, Hero calls $3.10

      Flop: ($15.50) 6 :heart: 5 :club: 8 :diamond: (4 players)
      BB checks, MP checks, CO checks, Hero bets $5.00, BB folds, MP folds, CO folds

      MP and UTG - regs. MP - a loose guy.

      I guess I overrated my pot + implied odds preflop when making that call. Just thought that a 4way pot with such a hand IP would be quite awesome.

      Should have been a fold vs such a big squeeze preflop.

      I am also not sure I like my postflop move. I mean, I do have some backdoors and the regs certainly play their give-ups the same way but then again, the PFA, or even the other reg might still sometimes choose to go for potcontrol with his overpair and vs those hands I am rather crushed.
      Looks close because I still expect to have fold equity + I have position + I get great odds for a bluff in such a sized pot.

      Hello Avatars91,

      You don't get the implied odds there ever cause clearly hitting a draw = GO-BROKE. Do you want to go broke with any draw? What about pairs? So can't see us hitting often enough to show success with our play.

      Nor of course I am not a huge fan of Betting the flop vs 2 nitty regs who have decent amount of PPs in their range + against a station who is never folding a pair/draw.

      Best Regards.
