Unwanted family-pot. I 3bet KK from button, blinds and initial better call.

On flop, blinds are going crazy.

Looks like a clear fold to me... or should I have shoved?

Readless this spot is so gross, I'd expect him to show up with some stupid Qx or flush draw so often here. Your big problem is that you don't really know what V2 is up to, chances are he's very weak but you don't know for sure.

I think folding is probably best here as people tend to play more honestly multi-way. If you know that V3 is a maniac, shoving would likely be profitable and you could expect him to show up with JTo or some other crap more often that the times he'll have Q4 but it's a much higher variance line to take.

he can haz JJ,44 ----> u dead
but he can haz QJ, KTs ....
QJ,Q4... u haz 30% win odds
, ... coinflip....
random hand = KQ,AQ


it is 4way,deep,he just flat 3bet preflop... i guess dis is definitely clear fold, u are never good here, u can probably thanks him for making dat raise so big, dat u can save even more money , instead if he raised smaller and lured u in with his set ... dat would be much worse for u

some marginal play could be to just call his raise and see if u r good on turn w/ ur 30%, 50% odds....
but in 2NL/5NL i doubt players make bigsqueeze in 4way pot with worse hand than u have now

to sum it up , in 2NL, 5NL if u do yourself a lot of raise+squeeze w/ nothing, then u will have no problem with folding such a 4way spots w/ top pair like dis one

tnx spand and naturo for conforming the fold wasn't too bad

I thought his most likely holding was QJ.

very bad fold..3 under cards and 2 flat calls /.. me thinks

I could be wrong ..you played them and obviously had respect for what they "had" or did. You invested in the pot x% ..flat call would have sufficed in my humble opinion
