      Preflop: Hero is SB with J:club: , Q:diamond:
      MP2 calls $0,50, MP3 folds, CO calls $0,50, BU calls $0,50, Hero calls $0,25, BB checks.

      Flop: ($2,50) T:heart: , 2:spade: , 9:diamond: (5 players)
      Hero bets $2, BB folds, MP2 calls $2,00, CO calls $2,00, BU calls $2,00.

      Turn: ($10,50) Q:club: (4 players)
      Hero bets $6, MP2 folds, CO calls $6,00, BU folds.

      River: ($22,50) Q:heart: (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $9,50, Hero calls $9,50.

      Final Pot: $41,50

      My question here was about the flop. I have OESD + 2 overcards, but I'm OOP. Is it good to lead here against multiple villains or check/call (I had reads from BU and MP2 that they were calling stations who never raised with anything but stonecold nuts) ? I was little afraid of J8 so I just check/called river, hoping to get a bluffbet from busted draw or 2 pairs.

      Hi degnic!

      On the flop you are up against 4 players oop. Two of them are calling stations which means a semi-bluff is definitely -EV. So I would just check/call here. On the river I would bet again for value and call a raise because your trips often are the best hand.

      Good luck at the tables!
