      Hi,


      Even getting 10:1 it's not that obvious a call with a gutshot, considering you're not closing the action and this A is likely to stir up some more bets in a 4-way pot, there is no guarantee you actually get to see a river for that price. Let's call that marginal and move on.

      On the river I think this card is somewhat scary for everybody and it's not that easy for either villain to have Jx in that spot, so I'm not sure I would give them the opportunity to check that river through. The small bets and small raises on the turn didn't really make me confident in their abilities to bet again, most likely I'd just donk out myself around $1.9 and hope they somehow pay off with two pairs/Ax, most of them will end up shoving Jx anyway if they somehow have that.


      Hope it helps.
