      On flop we are 4 way, still I have TP on dry board so I decided to bet and fold to action- what do you think, should I just check/fold such hands? Turn is good for me because there are lot more Q possible I have beat, so I just try to pot that loose shortstack allin.

      Check/fold TP on that board is definitely too weak. So bet/fold is fine.

      On that turn vs shortstack its instant push, but since we usually don't overbet, :P we play bet/call turn, bet river.

      Bet/folding the flop against a bunch of limpers is fine, they can peel with pocket pairs, worse Qx and A-high there. If you start by checking you'll have no idea what they're betting with, it's usually not a good plan against bad players.

      On the turn i'd bet half pot, the shorty is going to end up all-in anyway on the river and the board is dry, i'd rather not scare him away when betting big doesn't accomplish anything. Obvious river value shove.

      Hope it helps.
