      Hero wins $14.54


      T is kind of a question. He probably doesn't have super strong Kx like AK, maybe some KQ and KJ are possible. He donks really small amount on the T so I think he has FD or some weak Kx. When he insta calls my raise I was sure he doesn't have FD. Although I was worried of him having K9/ KT/ K2.

      Is R shove spewy? I go for max value against KQ/ KJ. Is it better to vbet small next time sth like $2,40?

      Hi Yax,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: Considering that we are multiway, have a weak bluffcatcher and another guy behind I would look at folding the flop. We also have little hope for improving our hand.

      AS played raising turn is the right move but I'd make it at least 2.1-2.3 here for pure value/protection and to be able to shove river without having to pot it.

      His hand doesn't look to be a strong Kx (given turn play) so I would be tempted to check the river back because all draws get there.
