      Stats:17/12/6,8/192

      Preflop standard.

      On the flop is cbet against two players ok here? Player on the big blind was fish.

      Turn I chech it ,cause I'm not sure if I have the best hand and I dont want to make pot bigger ,oponent checks behind luckily.

      River I chose just to call it ,its mistake I think ,I was afraid of bigger straight ,but now I know that it was very unlikely ,because I had 77 on my hand so i blocked a lot ...only
      78 could beat me and I was holding 77...anyway...river is mistake I know it ,i should shove it with 3bet.

      But what about that turn ? Second barel or just check/call as I chose ?

      Hi Treyking,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: I think that we should cbet our overpair and OESD on that flop despite being multiway. If we check we almost always have to ck/fold.

      On the turn we should look at ck/folding. Villain is on the tighter side and his range will be mostly overpairs and stronger flush draws. I don't see value in a bet there because nothing better folds (except maybe 88) and not much worse calls (except a few draws that still have decent equity versus us).

      On the river, I agree with you, that this should be a 3bet because he may have poorly played sets that can't fold. since we hold 2 7s he can only really have 2 combos of 78s and if that's far fetched because I don't think a 17/12 calls 78 from CO versus UTG.

      If instead of CO we had BB it would be possible to have the 2 combos of 78s.

      So...turn check/fold and river should be 3bet shove as played . Right ?

      That's correct.

      That's how I would play it.

      I think villain will bet turn only with overpairs/sets and some draws.
