      Final Pot: $2.10

      Two questions: First, I called the river because of how passively the hand was played. I didn't think it was too likely that anyone held a 4 or a J (or a straight.) For a 1/2 pot bet, I figured it was worth trying to catch a bluff or a smaller pair. Was this OK, or should I have just folded the river?

      Second question is should I have considered betting out on the flop? It is likely that everyone is scared of the paired board, I technically have an overpair, and it is not too likely that someone is holding a random 4. If I get raised I can easily fold. Thoughts?

      For the first question, I like the call when you´re heads up or last to act. With two others to act behind you its close. I guess its ok as long as you fold against further action.

      Second, I see not many reason to bet into 3 opponents here, since any Overpair will call or raise you. A 4 or pocket 5 will float you and raise on the Turn, and Overcards will often stay in the hand as well. Against 1 or maybe sometimes 2 opponents where you´re last to act I would like to bet out on the flop, but not against 3.
