Hi, villains are unkown here.
The flop is a check fold situation ?
Should I call the small turn bet after there was a caller ?

If nobody bets on flop is a strong sign that nobody has an A. However the player that bets is not in position meaning a solid hand, maybe an weak ace, even 7 or 9.
On river he continues to bet, maybe because he has an A or because he think his opponent just fails the flush draw.
I will call the turn bet. if he bets on river I will probably call because maybe he's just betting, thinking that I miss a draw and his bet is not too big.

Hi fp,

I think check/fold is a good flop strategy here since it is multi-way... c-betting into 3 opponents isn't going to be profitable with 2nd pair as it's just too likely someone has hit an ace or better.

I agree with blast however, when no one bets the flop, the likelihood of an ace being out against us goes down, so I would lead the turn for value.

As played, V5 has been check to twice by us and now makes small turn bet, and is only called by V1. His range rates to be pretty weak here, as does V1's, so I would lean towards calling now as I think we have the best hand often enough.
