How do I play multiway pots at .05/.10?
I don't understand how I'm supposed to play these multiway pots when the limpers can't be driven out.
Situation: I'm in the bb and get AhKh. 3 limpers and the sb fills and I raise it to .70 (7xbb). I get 3 callers. Pot is $2.10. Flop comes 7cKd5d. Its check around to me and I bet $1. 2 drop out so it's finally heads up. Turn comes Kc and I figure he's missed his diamond draw and fire another another $2. He calls. River comes 8s and I figure there's nothing he can have. I put him all in and he calls. He turns over the 4c6c and has me beat with a straight.
Very next hand same type situation, I'm AJo, flop comes AJ7 rainbow. Turn and river 89. I'm firing 1/2 pot bets the whole way, he's calling and he shows a 5d6d. Beats me with a straight.
It seems like every time I get decent cards there are 3-4 callers with a 3xbb bet. Am I missing something?
