[NL2-NL10] 97s in BB v many fish

      I decide to play my suited 1 gapper as the players in the pot are very active and I have witnessed them chasing draws many times ina sample of under 100 hands. I could have even gone for an iso raise but didn't want to bloat the pot with a weak holding.

      After flopping TP and with noone showing any aggression I decide to bet my TP in position.
      I am happy to take it down right here as there are so many turn cards that I won't like against multi opponents. If I get called I still have a hand that will be ahead a large % of the time, especially against two fish (SB 53/3, UTG 39/5). Is this considered a high variance play??

      After getting called by two opps and checked round to me again I decide to bet again to protect my hand. Now SB shoves his small stack and UTG calls which makes an easy call for me getting such a big price.

      When it is checked to me on the river by UTG I check behind as I will only be getting called/raised by better hands. Although I am still confident I am ahead a check raise by UTG would make me spew!

      Is this play okay? I will guess at no?

      Hi Zachrina,

      Why are we posting our BB out of position, in the CO? Why not wait for to get to BB?

      As played flop/turn looks fine and I agree that on the river there's not much value in a bet.

      The only thing I would change is not to post OOP, and just wait for the BB to get around to me.

      MMmmmm yes,

      I think I went to toilet and decided to play as the blind had passed me anyway and would've payed it anyway. I don't normally do this so that must be the reason.
