      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.25/$0.5 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      MP2:
      $99.50
      MP3(Hero):
      $55.90
      CO:
      $50.00
      BU:
      $69.40
      SB:
      $98.25
      BB:
      $50.00


      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with A, Q.
      MP2 folds, Hero raises to $2.00, CO calls $2.00, BU folds, SB calls $1.75, BB calls $1.50.

      Flop: ($8) 7, A, 6 (4 players)
      SB checks, BB checks, Hero bets $5.00, CO calls $5.00, SB folds, BB folds.

      Turn: ($18) T (2 players)
      Hero bets $12.00, CO calls $12.00.

      River: ($42) 4 (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $31.00(All-In), Hero folds, CO gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $42.

      I know that turn completes every possible str8/flush draw here. But he could hold for example 8 5 and turn card could scare him - any K x has got a better flush right now. So I barreled the turn, but after call only c/f river was the only correct way imo.

      1. if u want to c bet on that flop with 4 opponents on that flop u should bet more, pot bet is ok for me (or something close if u dont like to bet pot)

      on turn is easy c/f, bluffing here without a strong read doesnt make any sens for me


      2. he is giving u a good odds for call, so i would propobly take it, but is really opponent depended

      1) I would also c/f turn, don´t think he holds there too much lower flush to just call you on the flop.
      2) MP3 likely has there two pair+ hand. I´d also take b/f line unless I have reason to believe that he might raising there with draws. Then I´d call flop and evaluate on the turn
