      SB: 41/19 28h
      BB: 45/21, afq total 56, 30h

      FLop - no cbet because its multiway and I think their equity which calls is good - they are likely having draws and Kx, pluss better 2nd pairs.

      But maybe should cbet to fold their another equity which does not call. I think betting is like bluff.

      On the other hand in 3way I am not happy using this hand as bluffcatcher. BUt I have backdoor draws, so I could bluffcatch if I hit FD.

      Overall for my this x, x/f looks weak.

      Hey SpeedFANat1c,

      It's true equities will run close vs the range that continues to your cbet. However by checking back you are letting your opponents freeroll a ton of equity in a situation where you very often have the best hand. Best option here is likely to cbet flop for protection/thin-value.

      Turn is awkward. Pretty close to a call. The only downside to calling is that river will be tough. Hand is probably easier to play overall if you cbet flop. Raising turn and checking back river is another ok option if you suspect BB is aggressive, but assuming he is passive your fold is the best option.
