      NL Holdem $0.50(BB) Replayer
      SB ($46.35)
      Hero ($10)
      UTG ($9.25)
      UTG+1 ($101)
      UTG+2 ($16.60)
      MP1 ($66.30)
      MP2 ($44.50)
      CO ($50)
      BTN ($101)

      Dealt to Hero T:heart: K:heart:

      fold, fold, UTG+2 calls $0.50, MP1 calls $0.50, fold, fold, BTN calls $0.50, fold, Hero checks

      FLOP ($2.25) 9:heart: 8:spade: J:club:

      Hero checks, UTG+2 checks, MP1 checks, BTN bets $2.25

      Villain Preflop 24/4, WTSD 19, Flop AF 1.4

      Give up or shove?

      Equity gives me 33% against all made hands 99/88/JJ/QT/7T/xJ, which isn't enough, but we might have some FE if he is just stealing here to 3 checks.

      Somteimes I like shoving this pre-flop. But with a full stack and without much info on opponents a call might be better.

      I think he can actually call you with a wider range here, some more draws, and you can get 35-37% equity, but still I'm not sure I like the ch/R on a 4 way pot and also BTN doesn't seem to be generally aggressive. So another option could be to lead out betting and fold to resistance. That way you wouldn't have to invest your whole stack and you can hope to catch a :heart: or any of your OESD outs for a push on the Turn.

      ...this.

      As played, I find fold the best here, villain isn't too aggressive and by betting PS he doesn't give you the odds to call nor I see enough FE to make a check/raise profitable. Leading flop would be an option, but I don't really like it, because you would have to give up to a reraise most of the time and it's a 4-way pot, so someone might have flopped a strong hand.
