      Easy call on the turn? Villain (with his stack) would shove with a draw or with any medium pair, would not he?

      Hero did not bet on the turn, because there were two opponents, he was not sure about MP3 who had full stack and he tried to control the pot. Was hero's line correct (considering possible draws)?

      It depends what you guess BU is pushing here (orly? :D ldo).
      I prefer to bet 7.09 on the turn myself and put bu all in. If the thirs player then comes over the top it's an easy fold. Check/fold is not that bad either.

      Your flop bet is too small.
      Any draw/pair would continue with your bet. I´d make it 4$ and call Bu shove. If Mp3 also calls then I´m done with the hand, unless Bu would shove turn and Mp3 folds.
