      I think with this many opponents and only top pair the best play is check/fold on the flop. In unraised pots (freeplays) we normally need 2 pair to continue as per the SSS articles which are easily enough to play NL10 profitably.

      Since this is NL10 I dislike the Check/Fold on turn. I bet/fold it again for value against villains who are in majority too loose and calling stations.

      edit; I also bet potsize on flop.

      Hi Huseens,

      I bet Flop for Potsized and shove the Turn as played, I think your hand is mostly good here

      Best regards,
