      Hi,

      I would prefer checking here. In order to justify value betting here, you need either player to call you with a weaker hand on average. I'm not so sure if that's going to happen in a 3-way pot.

      Checking is often better. You either let them bluff once or twice, or you weaken the perceived strength of your hand and gain further confirmation that they each have nothing, then you start betting on a later street for value.
