      Hi everyone,

      Can I still bet out on the turn or probably should exercise pot control since there are many callers and the jack wasn't really a nice turn..

      Thx for any feedback..

      Greetzz

      I'd bet more on the flop. The turn card sucks. I think b/f would be fine and if you get called reevaluate on the river.

      With so many limpers I would pot it on flop. You probably have the best hand and you basicly don't want to see turn because only 2,3,4,8 and K are OK for you, everithing else is pretty scary.
      For turn and river, I completely agree with EmanuelC16

      This wraps it up in a 4-way pot where you let everybody get in cheap.

      If it was heads-up you'd probably be forced to bet/call that turn anyway unless villain was a nit, since people with stuff like J8/J9 and sometimes "combo hands" like JT can also go nuts in that spot.


      Hope it helps.
