      i don't think calling preflop is good with such a cheap pot and it will also be multiway which sucks so i just squeeze which i think is standard.

      flop i have to cbet bigger i realise now.

      turn i have no idea what to do. AQ already beats me, along with pocket 44/77 and obviously i'm beaten by lots of flushes which are definitely in their ranges. i just folded and watched the hand. even though i would have held, is it better to give up on this turn or better to check/fold?

      Hello,

      Preflop I don't mind squeezing here.

      I like your bet on the flop here.

      I don't really have anything against check/folding here.
      Since we are three-way it's quite likely for some of them to have a flush plus there aren't really too many worse hands that would call us down.

      Best,
      Plamen
