      havn't analysed al my hands yet, as I've been quite bussy with work and stuff, but this one still anoys me, and I'd like some feedback on it.

      Ofcouse I reraise for value, I make it a bit bigger as I'm OOP.

      Both BB and CO calls me, and I do hit a very drawy board, which both villains should have cards in their calling range, however I think I should value cbet still even tho it's multiay?

      I get called by BB which indicate strength, but I still think I have the best hand here, so cbet here aswell, thinking I should fold to a raise, however... I also have a draw to the nuts, but I'm beaten by completed draws and 2pair combos, was my call still valid (I still have equity)?
      He also could be bluffing which people with large stacks has a tendency to do...
      Problem could be, he could have blockers.

      Hi Resilence

      Preflop: I like your thinking and 3bet size.

      Flop: given that the board is so draw heavy even if it's 3-way I agree that you need to bet. However, I would make the bet size bigger $1.40-50 as you can get value from AK/JJ. My plan would be to bet/fold.

      Turn: If you cbet bigger you could ship this turn as it's a blank, AK is not fold and your may still get value from JJ possibly AQ. As played, I would bet/fold the turn again as we don't want to miss out on value. When he ships we are very often behind and we need 28% equity to break even. His value range could be AK/QQ+. I don't think he ever has here AJ/JJ/KQ/KT/QT without specific reads. Against QQ+/AK range we have 52.1% equity so we could call.

      Board: KdTsQs8c
      Equity Win Tie
      MP2 52.10% 46.15% 5.94% { AsAc }
      MP3 47.90% 41.96% 5.94% { QQ+, AKs, AKo }

      However, if it's only sets then we can't call:
      Board: KdTsQs8c
      Equity Win Tie
      MP2 13.64% 13.64% 0.00% { AsAc }
      MP3 86.36% 86.36% 0.00% { KK-QQ, TT }

      All in all, I would bet bigger myself on flop and shove the turn vs value from weaker hands. As played, I would call his shove as it's possible that he does this with AK from time to time which makes this call a break-even.

      Best wishes

      Flop: this is between a bet/fold and a check/call. This flop is pretty ugly and i think potcontrolling aa here and playing more passively may be the better option. If villain is a fish then betting flop is better but we are crushed vs a standard raising range on this super wet flop so this should be a bet fold.

      Turn: i think u should have bet larger on the flop so u can push the turn. As played its close between a call and a fold. If villain's pushing range contains stufd like KJo then u definitely cannot fold.
