      villain 28/18 af 1.9 (0.0 3bet) 22wtsd 86hands

      Flop: value+protection

      Turn:value bet+ protection...

      Now after he raised it's simply either a shove or a fold, what i was thinking here is that if he had a big hand like set or two pair, we would have raised on the flop, because the flop is just very drawheavy and it's a multiway pot... so on turn because there were so many draws now, and he wasn't terrible (i think just calling a set in that spot on flop would be really bad), i decided to go with the hand here.

      Were my thoughts any good in this hand? Or was i just pissed off and overplayed?

      Hi Cozacu,

      Preflop: looks good

      Flop: big cbet versus 4 people is fine for value/protection.

      Turn: While I agree that villain shouldn't call many sets on these flops many people (at 10nl) still do. So I wouldn't discount all sets from his range.

      Considering he has SB still to act I can't see him min raising a draw here (most people just call to hit, especially multiway).

      So if I can't see many draws raising then I would need to find either worse hands that he raises for value or bluffs.

      Considering how the action went I don't think he can raise as a bluff many hands since he won't have many and I don't think he would raise worse for value. Thus I'd bet/fold.

      Keep in mind that some players also call small sets on flop with the intention of getting the money in on a safe turn, such as this.
