      Prima, $0.05/$0.10 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players
      Poker Tools Powered By Holdem Manager - The Ultimate Poker Software Suite.

      BB: $5.13 (51.3 bb)
      UTG: $9.81 (98.1 bb)
      MP: $10.17 (101.7 bb)
      Hero (CO): $10 (100 bb)
      BTN: $18.32 (183.2 bb)
      SB: $10.89 (108.9 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with 5 A
      UTG folds, MP calls $0.10, Hero raises to $0.40, 2 folds, BB calls $0.30, MP calls $0.30


      Flop: ($1.25) 6 7 6 (3 players)
      BB checks, MP checks, Hero checks

      Multiway, I don't think I have a lot of fold equity. I decide to check behind and make a delayed cbet with a scare card.

      Turn: ($1.25) K (3 players)
      BB checks, MP checks, Hero bets $0.80, BB folds, MP calls $0.80

      They check again, I make a delayed cbet as planned.

      River: ($2.85) Q (2 players)
      MP checks, Hero checks

      I don't bet river because I don't think he's gonna fold pairs that he called turn with and I think I beat his draws with my ace high so no value on betting.

      Hello,

      Preflop I'd make it potsize.

      On the flop checking back and seeing the turn for free is good for me.

      I don't really like betting the turn. We can't make worse hands to call, or better to fold so I'd just check back and try to get to SD since we have decent SD value.

      Checking back the river is fine.

      Best,
      Plamen

      I don't want any hands to call. I'm not betting for value, its a pure bluff for me.

      Why do you think I have SD value with Ace high low kicker?

      We have SD value since we are ahead of hands like T9, JT etc and people aren't really tending to bluff in multyway pots so we can have a pretty easy play on the river.
