      After everyone checked the flop I assumed there's low probablity of someone holding a king and decided to bet. Is it ok? Could I check river? Could I do it if 9 was not hearts?

      Again, play passively in unraised pots.No need to bet the turn, just get to that free showdown if you can, otherwise c/f as your hand didnt improve.

      Thanks for your commants darkonebg, aprreciate it a lot.

      I kinda figured it out myself that I tend to overplay medium hands in an unraised pots. Now I see that I should fix that leak.

      As we're in the topic of unraised pots already I want to ask what to do if I hit top pair without a kicker in pots like this one. Just assume that I had K8 in that spot - what my line should be? Check/calling? Leading myself with a bet?

      Your equity is greatly reduced against 4 opponents, even with top pair. A bet on the flop may limit your opposition,but you can also get into situations where you are outkicked or opponent has some random hand for two pair + . My advice is to try to get a cheap showdown in such kind of pots, or get out if they start showing aggression, unless you have the goods ofc. On this limit, your profit wont come from this kinds of pots with marginal hands,but by valuebetting your strong ones.

      hi
      if you didnt raise preflop try to get to showdown as cheap as you can in such a multiway pot . if you were in position beting was fine if checked twice to you .
