      MP: $2.89 (144.5 bb)
      Hero (CO): $2.16 (108 bb)
      BTN: $1.95 (97.5 bb)
      SB: $5.77 (288.5 bb)
      BB: $1.53 (76.5 bb)
      UTG: $0.97 (48.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with K K
      UTG calls $0.02, MP calls $0.02, Hero raises to $0.14, BTN calls $0.14, SB folds, BB calls $0.12, UTG calls $0.12, MP calls $0.12

      Flop: ($0.71) 3 7 4 (5 players)
      BB bets $0.02, 2 folds, Hero raises to $0.70, BTN calls $0.70, BB folds

      Turn: ($2.13) 9 (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.32 and is all-in, BTN calls $1.11

      River: ($4.35) 4 (2 players, 1 is all-in)

      Seemed like a nightmare.

      I was totally freaked out by the amount of players in the pot, not to mention the wonderful flop.

      Flop: if someone raises, I'm folding.

      Turn: well, he didn't raise the flop, so I hope he doesn't have a flush or a straight (or both). I don't have much of a choice anyway, considering STPR I just shove it.

      Do we even c-bet here? I just couldn't muck KK on a 7-high board, especially to a 2 cent donk!

      Hi German,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: I'd play it the same even though you will occasionally see better hands. Raise flop, shove any safe turn.

      I dont understand why would you also bet turn, especially because BTN calls? It is 5way pot, they mostly call with small PP, suited connectors.

      On this board, it is so likely that at least one player hits set, flush, straight, two pairs, a pair + flush or straight draw, and we are crushed against almost all on flop.
      Maybe we win against TT-QQ, but if they have heart, we are also not great against them.

      What's BTNs range in your mind? Just set and flush?

      What would he do with NFD or pairs over 7x?

      Hi guys,

      @ mlatasrb,

      Imo, a straight would shove the flop.

      I don't think that 2P are all that likely, only 43, and it's not the best connector. Anyways, two pairs are shoving the flop as well.

      Against a pair or an overpair with a heart, we have a profitable shove. We can even shove for value here (more than 50% equity).
