      BU is 43/0, 7h

      Usually I open 4x from UTG.

      4-way my plan is to bet/fold. I`m betting bigger, because flop is very connected and I need to protect my hand.

      Better to overbet shove? Betting 1/2 here and the rest on the river seems fine too, I think.

      When villain jams, I need only 24% equity. Even against the range without FD`s, I`m getting 42%:

      Board: 8:heart: 6:heart: 7:diamond:  6:diamond:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      BU     57.87%  57.87%   0.00% { JJ-66, T9s, T9o }
      HERO   42.13%  42.13%   0.00% { QhQs }

      1) Don't like to bet the Flop so large. I think 3/4 is enough but this is just nit picking. My take on this is that if you bet way too large you may end up isolating yourself vs only the strong hands.

      2) On the Turn when you get jammed on, this is not really a great spot. While I call here sometimes in HU, I think there's a few things to take note off

      a. He is short = makes calling better
      b. He jams instead of minraises = his range is less polarized
      c. There are 2 flush draws out there = he could potentially have a semi-bluffing range
      d. this is multiway = makes his continuation range stronger
      e. turn raises are usually strong
      f. board is ultra coordinated = folding is better

      I think calling could be fine.
