With a total of 3 limpers ahead of me, I'd raise 3x the big blind + 1 big blind for each limper in the pot, this will help to ensure thinning the total players to see the flop also it'll increase my equity. On the turn I have high card value, but in a limped pot scenario 4way, I will be checking the turn for pot control. I don't want to bet the turn as I'd be charging myself to draw. The river completes my straight ten to ace, I can bet 1/2 to 3/4 pot for value as there is a possibility of a wide range of Tx, Jx and slow played Kx hands that our opponents limped in with. When I get check raised on this river depending on the amount I can: 1.) bet >> call 2.) bet >> fold (this depends on the table dynamics/reads/tendencies of the villain that has check raised me) The villain is representing a strong hand here on the river, I beat every hand except a flush and a full house. Here are some examples of hands that the villain has (ex. KK QQ QJ KQ +) that's a lot of hands that beat my straight. Remember this, we are playing against a range of hands. There absolutely nothing wrong with folding what appears to be a strong hand. Hope this helps!

                        right odds to call on the turn looking for straight and right to fold on the river?

                          Hi Hendo, What are your reads on villain 2, 3 and 8? in the SB position can be a good scenario depending on the table dynamics, how many are involved in the pot and villain tendencies. But with 2 limpers and a 4x raise ahead of me read less I will be folding from the SB. Here are some reasons as to why I would fold preflop. 1.) I will be out position post flop in a potential multiway pot. 2.) These are the range of hands that I'm behind of (ex. AQ, KQ, QJ, AK, TT, JJ, QQ, KK, AA) Post flop read less, I flop top pair a check>>call line is nice as it's a really dry flop and most times I'll only get called by a better hand if I'm to bet, let's also factor in out kicked Qx hands that I'm ahead of (Q7 Q8 Q9) I want to keep that range in the hand. Let's focus on your bet sizing, I'd like to see you bet 1/2 to 3/4 pot with your value hands that have connected with the board, also starting hands and position

                            the hole table was super loose iv found this quite a lot....
                            in this kinda game do you loosen up your self?
                            and it was hard to put him on AQ as he just called pre flop
