      Bet. For value/protection of equity against regs and for value against fish.

      I think you should simply c/f here.Maybe you have the best hand right now,but you won't win the pot often enough on the flop,3 opponents act after you,and this board is simply hits their ranges so well.Don't put money in a pot that you can't win.

      Hey,

      Given ther high combined fold against cbet, you can consider betting but 4way I think it's just so unlikely you get the required folds that check/folding is best. You basically need all the stars to align for this to work because you can consider you have air. I would rather cbet any JTs, 8x here because it gives you better semi-bluff equity, cleaner outs and blocks some (very few but it matters when it's close) of their continuing hands.

      OK, which other 2 players are with you? What are their stats? Action depends on what their tendencies are likely to be, not just how many they are.

      With UTG in I would probably not cbet (unless HU when you are betting for value). With only the other 2 players involved, cbetting is decent, it should show a profit imo since they will fold enough of their range imo.
