      Hi,


      I'm betting that flop last to act, somebody could also be slowplaying Kx and 2 of these players are huge calling stations, so i'd bet to try and get some money in right on the flop.

      As played on the turn i'd make it 4x when i raise, and shoving the river is obviously fine since he could just have a good Kx.


      Hope it helps.

      You are right about the flop. With so many players in the hand i should've made a bet for value.

      But how big a bet? Should i place a min bet or standard 2/3 pot bet? And if i do get a raise here, i just cold call or push?

      Thanks.

      Hi,


      Forget the minbet you should barely ever do it.

      Just fire something reasonable like that allows you to get it in in 3 streets against the biggest stack. $0.6 is fine.

      If you get raised it depends if you are in position or not, since when you're in position it's easier to just call not to scare anyone off and let the other player valuestack himself into you, while when you're out of position he can decide to check back good hands and that's disastrous for you. At microstakes however i don't think many people would be bluffing with a raise 5-way and they probably aren't ever folding Kx either, so just 2.5x their raise will likely yield the same result with them stacking off anyway.


      Hope it helps.
