      Turn: ($5.50) K (2 players)
      Hero bets $4.10, MP2 raises to $10.65 and is all-in, Hero folds

      $13.70 pot ($0.91 rake)
      Final Board: 3 Q 5 K
      MP2 mucked and won $12.79 ($6.34 net)
      Hero mucked 6 6 and lost (-$6.45 net)

      MP2 is LAGy under 30 hands and MP3 is Nitty over 300 hands,

      I think the Turn card was a good card for me to barel I think with my Bet I can make it very hard to call with Qx and weaker pairs.

      Preflop is definitely a complete in the SB. We are
      -Low Pair
      -2 limpers

      All these factors favour a limp more. The pot will have 40 cents in a 4way pot anyway, which is fairly big. If we hit a set we can easily pot all 3 streets and get a decent-sized pot.

      Flop: This is why I don't want to raise preflop. We get 2 callers with a shitty hand. I just give up here right away. Betting on a King or Ace high rainbow flop could be better but still I don't think you should bet here.


      Your logic is inconsistent here so you might want to think more deeply about how your cbets on Flop and Turn affect villain's calling range.

      Turn: Firstly, I think the Turn bet is way too big.

      1) By betting the Flop here, you are assuming that these 2 guys fold anything besides QX. If you think they float you here a ton, betting here is just burning money.

      2) When we bet the Turn, we are trying to make him fold non QX hands. I think you cannot make QX hands fold (QJ QT AQ are all calling at least once more). If you think he still has some non QX hands on the Turn, then you should not even have bet the Flop.

      This is very different from a Headsup pot. Betting with air in multi-way requires you to have a good read on how often your opponents are folding on the Flop (look at both of their fold to flop cbet).

      Hope this helps you understand why the Turn bet is not good. Good luck
