      2 folds, MP1 raises to $0.17, 2 folds, CO calls $0.17, BU folds, SB calls $0.15, Hero calls $0.12.

      Flop: ($0.68) T, 3, 5 (4 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks, MP1 bets $0.35, CO calls $0.35, SB folds, Hero calls $0.35.

      Turn: ($1.73) 8 (3 players)
      Hero checks, MP1 checks, CO bets $1.73, Hero ???

      Final Pot: $9.15.


      With 3 players already in the pot a 3bet would really be called by better from what I've seen so far on NL5 Rush. I really didn't want to play a big pot with just an overpair so because of the the action I'm really in doubt about what to do. If it was HU or 3-way it would have been a lot easier but 4-way really made me confused in this spot...

      Hi,


      Calling preflop is okay, being able to flop a high set in a multiway pot is always a good thing which can have more value than a 3-bet when you're confident people will rarely call it with worse hands.

      Postflop folding is fine with MP1 still to act. I doubt CO is betting pot with Tx hands and we have no reads on him being able to do that with spades either, while his line is consistent with the way most people would play all sets and T8 in his shoes.


      Hope it helps.
