      Folding was the correct thing to do, right? And why? The pot odds were quite bad in my opinion, but were there any other factors that made the fold the correct decision?

      Hi Ohmu,
      IMO fold is correct. You are against 4 players allin.Your odds are not so bad, you have 9 outs , but you don´t have nut flush draw, so let´s say 7 outs or around 3,5:1 , for pot odds of 3:1. Ok against one player, but 4.....

      U got 2:1 flush odds on the river. More than 3:1 pot odds (if u could be sure that UTG calls allin but after his raise it possible) . There's a set possibility (full house danger) and a higher flush danger. So I think it's a gamble. I would call although fold is correct here as well I think.

      Hi Ohmu!

      I would play check here on the flop. Don't bet into 5 opponents with only the third nutflush draw. A semi-bluff won't work here. After these all-ins I would fold because most of the time you are way behind and maybe already drawing dead (if someone is drawing to a higher flush). So fold is the correct move here.

      Good luck at the tables!
