    Hi kingkong,

    My thoughts are pretty clear on this one... fold preflop. Why are we squeezing 3 players with 43o from out of position? With a raise and 2 cold callers you need to size your raising much larger than this to effectively squeeze steal imo, more like .60-.75c here. That being said, in 5NL this is almost certainly a losing play against 3 randoms who have voluntarily put money in the pot for an open raise. The lion's share of your value in this spot comes from fold equity obviously and not hand equity, and this is a situation where I expect fold equity to not be very good. You did give stats for 1 villain (262 hands) but I don't know which one that is since you called him by screen name and not Villain #. Regardless... nice that this play worked out for you but I think over time this is a losing proposition and thus should be done very sparingly and in unique situations only that involve reads (on all players).

      ok sorry about the names . no stats on the raiser stats on first caller no stats on last caller . my range for to min raise open was 22-88 maybe TT AJo 45s to JQs and small suited Aces . thats the size they use to raise there junk on NL5 Zoom . and great flop 4 me unless he flopped a boat . and he was never raising me on flop with a boat or quads well maybe 10% of the time he will . and the turn bet was begging me to shove it was a feeler bet. maybe i am crazy or a little silly but my thinking
