      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?

      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.
