laid the hand down on the turn to about a 60% I had villian8 down as a very loose player that bluffed a lot but Villian_9 had shown a tendency only to bet with good hands. I expected him to be holding K/Q or maybe K/J.

Although I would have won was I right to lay this hand down working on the assumption I was behind after the turn and the bet was my bet would have been 100 into a 276 pot.

If somebody bets in a 4way pot like this, I'm trowing my middlepair out of the window, no doubt

Hi Webbo62!

Facing a raise in front of me, 57s is not strong enough of a hand to play preflop and I need to muck it immediately. I may open it if it folds to me, but it's not strong enough to call a raise with.

If I saw the flop (which I would not), when the opps check to me in position, I have 2 choices. I can make a 3/4 pot bet (due to 3 opps in the hand) or I can check and fold to any action if my hand does not improve. Which I do needs to be based on a read of the opps, which is not provided.

The real key though, is to muck to the preflop raise.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.

Yeah I didn't have much read to go on although villain_2 had played 85% of his hands and raised most of them pre flop, and was folding to any raise on the flop unless he hit hence the reason I called his raise.

As it turned out the price was obviously too good for the blinds and they came along.
