      i seem to get myself in a lot of bad positions in these freeplay games so i am wondering if i should them less aggressive.

      maybe i shouldn't bet the flop and if i do bet i should bet full potsize in an unraised pot. but since i chose to bet the potodds are fine for a call. turn is correct played imo. river?

      villains are unknown

      I always bet pot in unraised flops if i decide to get aggressive. HU this would be an easy bet for me, but multiway i'm not so sure. It hits SC and PP limping ranges quite nicely.

      Unless i have good reason to believe both Villains will fold in the majority of cases I try and play this one passively.

      Hi Raun,

      In a freeplay you shouldn't lead out with just a draw, unless it's a monster. The best thing to do here is check/call according to odds/outs. If you hit a top pair with a very strong kicker you might want to bet it out, depending on the situation, but a one card OESD is just not good enough.

      On the river I also don't like bet/pushing, villain can have you beat with way too many hands. I check/fold.

      Hi Raun,

      OC+OESD is still like 11 outs at most so it ain't a monster draw -> check/call accordingly. Moreover you dont want to isolate yourself against one opponent!

      That said, I just check/call accordingly to Implieds/Odds & Outs :)

      Best regards,
