      Hi,


      Against unknowns I'm c-betting by default and likely going broke unless maybe it goes c-bet / shove / cold-call / damn, we're just likely to make too many mistakes by not betting against people who are liable to have quite a bunch of worse hands to pay off with and not just two pairs/sets (against which we still have some outs too).

      As played turn is fine and river is really gross considering we're almost always splitting with at least one player and possibly beat by one of them too. Still even for a 3-way split we're getting 2:1 at that point, so we can't really fold.


      Hope it helps.
