      Hi,

      Preflop: Do you always raise only 3xBB from CO and BU? then your preflop raise of 4xBB was ok. Otherwise raise 5xBB because of the limper.

      Flop: Check behind here. You don't have a made hand and we don't bluff against two opponents. HU you would have bet ~$80 here.

      Basicly play c/f here until a A or K falls.

      Forgot to include the limper that time.

      Otherwise, concur that checking would have been the better option.

      Live and learn?

      Hey Jdz,

      This.

      Don't bluff against more than one opponent because fold equity is decreased and check behind in hope of hitting A or K on later streets.

      Well i bluff against 2 opponents in this type of scenario if they are by HUD readings high vpip maniacs(rise/bet with 23o and similar trash hands) or calling stations(which can be dangerous since they silently limp till showdown with made fullhouse or AA etc). I definetly would check/fold someone who's HUD readings would make ANY sense(vpip lower than 40).

      Is my idea right? :f_confused:

      Hey,

      if both opponents had very loose cold calling range(40%+), not just VPIP then shoving AK on the flop would be profitable according to some advanced calculations, but since you probably can't put villains on correct calling range it's better to just take the standard line which is c/f until improved to made hand, because when you face 2 opponents it's more likely at least one of them has hit the board and against a pair you don't have the needed equity to shove and such loose players won't be able to fold any pair on this board imo.
