      I always play TP J+ kicker as made hand in freeplays, is that somehow not advisable? How about in the 2nd example with a multi-way pot?

      Without reads I play it the same way in the first hand

      But in the 2nd hand I dont really like betting into 4 people. When someone raises I double think whether it is possible if i am beat, mostly this is easy solvable by spectating the table when not in a hand (= playing within comfort zone in multitabling)

      I sincerely think that c/c or c/RAI is a better move since I think you were beat in the 2nd hand but you priced yourself in by leading

      Best regards,
      Gerv

      @ Gerv:

      Why c/c or c/rai on the second hand? To evaluate what the others might have, so that if I see raise and re-raise on flop I can choose to fold?

      And I didn't understand what you meant by "you priced yourself in by leading".

      Well you bet into 4 other people with just TPTK, if they fold fine. if one of them call you are already doubting whether you have the best hand. If one raises you, you are even more doubting but you still have to continue aka shoving your hand since you dedicated yourself to go broke with TPTK

      Mostly I try to get more information by just calling an opponents bet who is in position to see if he takes a 2nd stab on the Turn. If not I bet on the River. If he takes a stab on the turn headsup , I mostly c/RAI if a comes or a blank. a Q , J or A will make me c/f the Turn.
