      River: ($2.21) 5 (2 players, 1 is all-in)

      Not entirely sure it was fine, but did it because of his midstack, thought I might have enough equity here to call. He could also do it with FD?

      Hello,

      I don't really like your play here.

      Preflop of course raising is fine.

      I don't really like your cbet on the flop.
      We just have A high, we have three opponents and we have the opportunity to have a free card, so I'd just check back the flop and see the turn.
      When CO shoves I think we have an easy fold. We rarely have enough equity to prove a call and he looks really passive so he might not evet shove draws.

      Best,

      I bet because I generate foldequity they both check to me, and I was the preflop aggressor.
      Maybe I would be enclined to folding to the MS player once he reraises me.
      He is quite loose and rather aggressive, I thought he was bluffing, and yes multiway pot.

      Still think the bet made sense, and I figured after he reraised my odds where to good to leave it.
      Guess I misscalced it dno, I need 50% equity here, and I only have like 20% against any PP.

      Hello again,

      I think cbetting here is bad because:
      - board isn't great and we are likely to get called by a lot of hands without a plan how to play against them on later streets
      - we have the opportunity to get a free card
      - also we don't have any backdoors

      Guess I misscalced it dno, I need 50% equity here, and I only have like 20% against any PP.
      You actually just need 34% after the rake.

      You do the math like this:
      You need to call $0.72 in order to win $2.21 ($2.10 after the rake). So you just divide those to and get to the right pot odds needed.

      Best,
