      Check/Fold here. It's unlikely that you'll fold both opponents with a continuation bet - and the paired board makes things even more dangerous.

      Yeah, when you face more than one opponent just stick to the made hands(and draws as described in the articles). In multiway pots it's better to keep $$$ for better opportunities.

      Hello Naturally2Bad,


      #Hand 1

      When you did not hit a Q or A on the Flop in a multiway pot always check/fold unless you can count yourself 13+ outs. (OESD/FD etc.)

      Your fold equity with a c-bet push decreases exponentionally with 3+ players in a raised pot.


      #Hand 2

      Remaining Stack :: Raise ratio is 5.15 namely $2.06 : $0.4 = 5.15
      with 5.15 you only can push JJ+,AK+ as explained in the Article right here ;)
      So I will fold AQo here

      Best regards,
      Gerv
