      Ok, on preflop I call for set value.

      On the flop I called because he had cbet 100%, but I think I should have folded. I don't know if he'd cbet against 4 opponents oop... I should have folded here I guess... Here my distraction made me think I was in position, I wouldn't have called if I knew I was oop. I wanted to call and reevaluate the turn. If he checked I'd check on the turn and call on the river unless it was an ace, if he betted again I'd probably fold, unless it was a bet like 1/3 of the pot.

      On the turn pot control... His check behind makes me believe he has 2 overcards.

      On the river I do a blocking bet, I don't want to call a big bet here, I know I'd give him the chance to bluff if I checked again but if he betted like 2/3 of the pot - size of the pot I wouldn't want to call with just my 88. I guess I was lucky that the FD completed...

      check / fold flop seems better here imo . he seems a decent player and fires a cbet into 4 people after he raised from utg so his range is narrowed to strong poket pairs . being out of position i am more inclined in check folding because by calling you practicaly want a cheap showdown and cant stand another bet and you have to play check/fold turn
      as played its no reason to block bet river and turn your pocket pair in to a bluff unless you put him on something like 99 tt that might fold . thats no value in your bet and you give him good odds to call with many hands i like check fold river better .
