      Flop: After getting called by 3 players; I don't like my hand much.

      Turn: Im telling myself Im going to bet\fold here.

      River: I talked myself into shoving AI, cause I wasn't sure if I would be able to check\fold. Which I think would have been the right play.
      I told myself if I shove worse hands like JJ, 99 and Two Pair combo's might call and ofc straight too. But if I check all those hands would check behind and most probably a straight would raise me AI.
      \thoughts?

      Hey RazDirk,

      It's true villain may sometimes hero call with something like 65. There is a decent chance he'd fold though - and if he did, your value bet would be awful.

      You also have the problem that a bunch of your opponents range must include 7x to call flop/turn, which means very often he has a straight. Seeing as villain's non 7x range includes mainly showdown hands, it's unlikely he will bet river when checked to with these hands as he'd often prefer to take the showdown over value-betting on 4-to-straight board.

      In other-words I think you are correct. Check/fold the river hoping it goes check/check.
