[NL2] Set of 10's in a multiway pot

      Hi all,

      So I flopped a set of 10's in a multiway pot with three other opponents on a rainbow flop with two overcards. Happy days. Action is checked around to me and I make a value bet for just over 1/2 the pot. The pre flop raiser who is behind me in UTG+1 calls and everybody else folds. At this point I think that he could be calling with top pair, J10+ or any queen to give him an OESD. I am however beat by JJ, KK or QA which I fell are all in his range as pre flop raiser, however his check on the flop makes me feel a little better. Turn comes and it doesn't change anything with 6d, so I make another bet this time 2/3 of the pot. He calls and river comes 8s. I make a final bet of nearly a full pot and villain folds. I suspect that he had a queen and was looking for a straight, or maybe even an ace and playing a bit fishy.

      Could I have played this any differently? Did I bet flop/turn too aggressively with the potential straight out there. Also could I have got more value on the river with a smaller bet? Id love to hear your thoughts.

      Bet more on the flop so you have easier shove on the river.

      Good point. I made a smaller bet on the flop as I did not want to have everybody fold.

      The will never fold or the will fold to every bet there one the flop. There is no in between I think.

      It is a dangerous board and you bet multiway so you should have good fold equity. So it might be true that they either have something good that calls or they fold. I like the idea of sizing up the bets a bit to have a smaller river shove. But as played I think this is fine and I wouldn't start sizing the river bet down and leave just a few blinds behind.

      That seems to be a mild form of masochism ;-) There are Q in the range of each of your opponents, with 8 outs for the straight. Each A has a gutshot, each 9 has a gutshot, 97s has a double gutshot. You can hope for AJ, AK, because if they hit trips, they will go broke against your full. But the straight outs AR a problem. Against one opponent, you can ignore it. Multiway, they are a threat. So you WANT some folds otf. I would bet at least 12 bb, perhaps up to 15.
