      i think this is one of the rare spots where its right to slowplay.

      Your opponents are showing aggression and you hold the second nuts (second only to the very unlikely QQ).

      I would play just like you did and let them take the lead. If they slow down on the turn, i will then start betting myself.

      The point is just to find the best line to go all-in with, and hopefully bring along one or more players.

      i think u played this well. with no preflop raise, no one is playing QQ for sure. with 4 players in the pot on the flop i would check in the BB or min bet and hope someone bets into me. try to get your money in subtley by the river with as many villans as possible feedign the pot for ya :D

      Hey taifoon,

      nice hand.

      You can slowplay your hand as there are almost no hands that could have outs on you and you are OOP, so you can give villians a chance to bluff or hit something on the turn with what they'll pay you off...

      This time villains hanged themselves, but if all the players checked behind you would have to lead the turn in order to build up the pot and get all-in on the river.

      Regards,
