      You'd rather c-bet here as I'm concerned.
      Cause it will be quite hard to extract value from underpaire on this kind of board, even by slowplaying your TPTK. Here the only hands you will be able to take value from would be Kx and Qx I think.
      You may be already beaten, but here, what can you do instead of going broke? Nothing, you have to go broke on this spot. It's a pity if there's KQ, QQ+ against you ( I don't believe in K8), but so, what could you decently do with TPTK here on a 3way pot?

      Here a c-bet will usually buy the pot, but I do prefer this and avoid a fucking tilting 2outers turn.

      Here is my line:
      flop: c-bet/ call
      turn: check/call
      river: push

      Hey elhh82,

      what kind of opponents are you up against?

      If they're regs, I might cb flop and hope someone tries to steal the pot on the turn thinking you have trash without c-betting in 3-way pot and you are check/folding all the way. :)

      If they're fish, just ship it and hope someone has Kx/Qx to pay you off.
