65s flopped trips 3way. correct line / river call?? - Sun Nov 17, 2013, 10:19 AM

villain4: 50/0/0 over 10 hands
villain6: 11/8/1,8 over 800 hands

Preflop it's a pretty easy call with potodds and with a fish in involved in the pot. when villain7 bets here I put him on something like 77 or 88 most of the time and I decide to just flat to keep vilain 4 in the mix.

Turn is pretty safe for me and villain7 seems to jsut give up and I pretty have to bet this for value, but decide to keep it rather small because it's such a dry board and it's hard to imagine villains calling a big bet with anything that I have beat here. Then villain4 all the sudden comes in for a raise. It's really hard to put him on a 6, 99 or TT as I think he would have bet all those hands so the only thing I am really worried about is 78, but I think he would limp that pre.

Then the river brings a pretty horrible card. Villain leads for half pot and after thinking about it afterwards I think I made a bad call here. I don't think I'll have the best hand here more then 1/3 of the time.

Any thoughts on my line here and on the spot on the river?

You have 3:1 pot odds = 25% < 33% = EV+

Hi maDe91, I'm not too sure about preflop with four opponents left to act behind us. But maybe its okay to take a call there once in a while.

As played, I think we can benefit from a bigger turn sizing. There's not too many hands that would raise preflop, x/c flop, and x/r turn. I think the only hands that could make sense are 99, 76s, or A6s. 78s would probably cbet flop, TT would probably cbet flop too. by the way, I wouldn't give villains a limping range until I know that they do have one. We need to be good 25% of the time to make the call OTR and because their value range is too small here and they could be misplaying an overpair or running some weird bluff I think the call is marginal.
