      Hello,

      Preflop raising is fine.

      On the flop I don't mind raising here, but I'd probably make it around $0.35.

      As played, since the FD hits the turn, and we can hardly get called by worse here, I like checking both turn and river.

      Nice hand.

      Best,
      Plamen

      But don't you think I'm giving FD too good odds to call if I bet only $0.35? It's allmost like 1/2 pot bet. He only needs 1/3 pot bet on further 2 streets to make that call +EV.

      I don't really think we are giving them quite a good odds here.

      Also, by betting 80% here in a four-way pot we are likely to make pocket pairs to fold here.
