      Howdy,

      Overall seems fine to me.
      I would raise turn smaller tho, just because even if just initial better calls on the river pot is big enough and you have 1/2 pot size bet or even less left.

      Good luck!

      Hi,


      I'd just raise the flop 3-way by default. Often it's less scary than a turn raise and we have no reason to think MP2 is good enough to fold anything on the flop really.

      As played actually I usually just call the turn in position for a few reasons.

      First, we're not afraid of much on the river, A/Q are the only cards that would really annoy us, and by that I mean we'd be forced to fold, but it's an easy fold.

      Second, I think BB rarely has trips because leading a lone Qx hand on the flop isn't common, more often than not I think he'll show up with Ax there, so I just want him to continue betting with his top pair without getting scared by a raise.

      Third, MP2 can have trips, and if that's the case he will jam over a river bet by BB, or bet the river himself if MP2 checks it in which case we get to jam anyway. If he just has Ax as well and they both check, we wouldn't have been able to get the stacks in anyway and we have a better chance of getting a smaller river bet paid this way.


      As played when BB just calls the 3bet 3-way it's awfully scary because I don't put him on Qx on the flop and I think it's a pretty easy fold with Ax for any reg out there, which he very likely is given his bet sizing and his full stack. So really, the only hope we have is that he's really bad and either led out with Qx or can't let go Ax. It's a godly-hard fold to make on the river getting nearly 5:1 so most likely we have to just call him down when in doubt, but really we aren't happy at all.


      Hope it helps.
