      Hi nej,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: Why are we cbetting so small on the flop multiway? We should bet 2/3 pot or so.

      As played why not bet the turn or the river yourself?

      Hi Bogdan.

      Postflop i didn't want to bet too much because people dont like fold much after the flop, but i see i bet to small.

      Turn i wanted to bluff catch if i hit and fold if i miss. So i wanted to have a wide range.

      So what's the purpose of your flop bet then?

      We should decide on a course of action. If people don't like folding that means that we are betting for pure value so we can bet more. Betting this small will invite a lot of people in the pot and you will lose it because your bet looks weak. What do you plan to do if you get raised? I'm assuming you'd fold a lot.

      On the turn you are bluffcatching against what? You expect a NIT (the 12/7 guy) to call with random hands on the flop that he can bluff on the turn? You are much better off betting yourself with your gutshot/second nut flush and getting the nit to fold pairs.
