      BTN: 128.2 BB
      SB: 136.8 BB
      BB: 143.1 BB
      UTG: 41 BB
      Hero (MP): 361.7 BB
      CO: 100.8 BB

      SB posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has K:heart: K:diamond:

      fold, Hero raises to 3 BB, CO raises to 8 BB, fold, SB calls 7.5 BB, BB calls 7 BB, Hero raises to 35 BB, CO calls 27 BB, fold, BB calls 27 BB

      Flop: (113 BB, 3 players) T:club: 8:diamond: 5:spade:
      BB checks, Hero bets 26 BB, CO raises to 65.8 BB and is all-in, fold, Hero calls 39.8 BB

      Turn: (244.6 BB, 2 players) K:club:

      River: (244.6 BB, 2 players) A:club:

      Hero shows K:heart: K:diamond: (Three of a Kind, Kings) (Pre 68%, Flop 81%, Turn 91%)
      CO mucks A:diamond: Q:diamond: (One Pair, Aces) (Pre 32%, Flop 19%, Turn 9%)
      Hero wins 234.6 BB

      Is it ok my 4bet size? I am not sure if I should in this case avoid playing multiway by raising big, or raising smaller like 2.4$ so everybody calls. But when more people call, I lose more often.

      What about my cbet on flop? I cbet so small because I wanted BB to call with JJ or weaker. And sometimes it induces bluff raise.

      Hi mla,

      Preflop: Considering we had 3 callers there I don't mind our 4-bet size. This way even with a caller we have a PSB left.

      Flop: I actually like the small bet mostly for inducing light raises/calls.

      Well played.
