      1)My standard line in this kinds of spots and multiway is to donkbet=pot because i want to protect agaisnt a draw and i want to intimidate the villains and make them to fold.
      On this game i decided to take the line chk/raise.
      So which is the line taht you recommend for this spots?

      Hi MeAmor,

      Preflop: Looks fine.

      Flop: I don't mind our checkraise although the board is really dry and we have top set which means he has less hands that can call (and some of them like Overpairs and 2p would stack off anyway).

      As played shoving turn is fine because he won't fold anything that called the flop like Jx+.
