      If he bets on flop against 5 players on such dry board, I guess he will call here anyway, what do you think about my all-in raise?

      Nh, if you raised him you would have to commit more than 50% of your stack anyway.

      Whoa wouldn't you seriously call here and let him do the aggression thing? Also other people might call you and the board is too nice to play it aggressively..??

      The only thing you don't like is a King on the Turn.

      I favour a call here and see if the 3 guys behind you call or do a move.
      On the Turn, it becomes an easy shove since the Pot is equilavent to your stack.

      maximizing value on this kind of board is hard with pure aggression when there are 3 players behind you - balancing is overrated so you can make a move here imo

      Best regards,
      Gerv

      pushing is overplayed, sbs bet into 4 people looks so strong, when you start reraising his bet you isolate yourself against 2pair+ hands so i like calling here and get it in on the turn... maybe you are not even ahead against sbs betting range into 4 people.

      I would just raise him (4.5$) and commit myself. but the other they push, so the most easyiest way here is to push and its just NL50 so I didnt think so much about max value.

      I dislike calling here so much! We have a hand were we go broke. But this hand is so valnurable. Buttom two pair is one of the uglyst hands.
