      Wasn't sure how to play on the turn here.

      When I'm called multi-way I tend to give credit to an opponent having a strong range consisting of mainly Kx, 55's - 10's or a draw. However in this case, the oppenent is loose passive so could easily have worse?

      I looked at his WTSD% when seen flop and it was a relatively high 36%, with 40% of hands won - Although the sample is small, I took more from the fishy pre-flop stats.

      On the turn if I considered Chk / calling then figured if I'm happy to put money into the pot I might as well be betting it to gain a little fold equity (if any!?). Wasn't loving being raised at all, but it was too small to fold to with my outs?

      Seat 1: Player1 ( $7.31 USD ) - VPIP: 80, PFR: 0, 3B: 0, AF: 1.8, Hands: 35
      Seat 2: Player2 ( $1.63 USD ) - VPIP: 21, PFR: 2, 3B: 0, AF: 1.0, Hands: 56
      Seat 4: Hero ( $10.27 USD ) - VPIP: 31, PFR: 25, 3B: 7, AF: 2.7, Hands: 26864

      Hello,

      Preflop there's nothing else we can do.

      On the flop I prefer check/calling here.
      We are four-way so it's unlikely to have much fold equity and considering we don't draw to the nuts I think it's better to check.

      As played, I prefer checking the turn.
      When he raises I think calling is fine. We are OOP but I think we have huge implied odds against this guy.

      The river is good.

      Best,
      Plamen
