      Hi,


      I'd probably bet a little less on earlier streets, i know we have to protect and all but the pot is 4-way so it's a pretty good assumption that someone might already have us beat or have a very good draw, and the pot is hugely bloated. We won't like that many turn cards especially since our position isn't that great, and ending up almost committed if any of the obvious draws hit against unknowns is a really bad spot to get yourself into.

      As played the river basically boils down to weighting his Qx hands he might call a bet with against his missed gutshots and flushdraws that he might bluff with. Since you don't know what he'll do with his busted draws, check/calling doesn't feel that good, so i guess the next best option out of position with these pot odds is just to stick it in yourself to get value from worse Qx and suck it up if he has you beat.


      Hope it helps.
