      Now i really don't think that this is the correct line here, cause this is a 3-way pot, both villains have a pretty wide calling range and overall i don't quite get it how could they both fold here :f_biggrin: Unfortunately i like to try and take down the pot in these kind of situations, when there is no aggression before me. If there is a single bet from any of them on any of the streets i am surely insta-folding this. But here i see myself only to make fold such things like Ax, maybe some Kx, but nothing more..

      The standard would indeed be to check it down, but I don't think it is a bad bet per se, because usually your opponents would get aggressive with strong hands instead of checking twice, and even if they're slowplaying, they'll often check/raise your turn bet. So if you do get one of them to just call the turn, he'll often have a lone one pair hand that he didn't feel was strong enough to valuebet, which means it's probably weak enough to fold to another bet on the river, depending on exactly how he plays and what the river card is.

      So even if very often you're just collecting the pot by making worse overcards fold (which is never that bad considering one of them might improve on the river and scoop the pot from you), with the added option of barreling the river, it's a decent spot to get aggressive provided you have enough information on villains to play the river profitably.

      Hope it helps.
