      At first I did thought of taking a stab at the pot because any K-10 or higher should have raised this pot in my opinion.
      However I just decided to check

      So CO bets 2/3 of the pot. I fold.
      But my question is:
      Wasn't better to just call it or even re-raise it?

      HAND #1

      Party Poker, $0.05/$0.10 NL Hold'em Cash Game, 10 Players
      Hand History Converter by Stoxpoker

      UTG+2: $10.15 (101.5 bb)
      MP1: $17.66 (176.6 bb)
      MP2: $14.09 (140.9 bb)
      MP3: $1.83 (18.3 bb)
      CO: $5.45 (54.5 bb)
      BTN: $2.50 (25 bb)
      SB: $9.72 (97.2 bb)
      Hero (BB): $2 (20 bb)
      UTG: $2.48 (24.8 bb)
      UTG+1: $12.44 (124.4 bb)

      Pre-Flop: Hero is BB with 9
      UTG calls $0.10, 3 folds, MP2 calls $0.10, MP3 folds, CO calls $0.10, 2 folds, Hero checks

      Flop: ($0.45) K (4 players)
      Hero checks, UTG checks, MP2 checks, CO bets $0.30, Hero folds, UTG folds, MP2 folds

      You know that strategy says c/f.
      I sometimes tried to make a bet here, but they either fold crap or raise with a better hand. So you won't get any value out of it IMO.

      Also the fact that you're OOP against 3 players would worry me a bit.

      But maybe you can try to get some information by betting 2/3 pot, $0.30 isn't that much :rolleyes:

      If he raises you should fold and if he calls you'll get another tough decision on the turn..

      I wouldn't bet OOP with a 9 as kicker. a 10 or Jack instead of the 9 would be sufficient enough to keep on playing the hand.

      I agree what you say Kuip, You either win a small pot or lose a very big one.

      C/f all the way in a multiway pot OOP.

      You could consider taking the pot if you were up against only one opponent or if you were last to act and everyone else would've checked to you. In that case a potsized bet would be good.

      in 3way i would maybe make a bet myself sometimes (with 9-T kicker)
      but yeah, its more likely to bring troubles)
