      Hi.

      I am not sure why you are even overbetting the Flop. Definitely not a good spot for it. You just isolate yourself vs better hands.

      I would have probably stacked off anyway on the Flop, as we can be ahead of combo draws or TT. I don't think SB has QQ or AK, so we only lose to 98s,

      Thanks.

      We are 4-way on a super drawy board. I want to protect my hand here and get value from all the draws +2pair combos.

      Maybe it was paranio but I felt this reasoning was correct to overbet? :(

      Yeah that is paranoid. Betting for value and protection is one thing. Overbetting and scaring out all worse hands is another.

      Don't be obsessed with protection, value is more important here. I would bet about 1.80-2$ here.
