This is after 100 hands with villain who has been very aggressive post flop with 71% c-bet
I have not raised much this session with a pfr of around 6 at this stage.
It has been an uncomfortable session as I am fairly new back to poker and have not played many multiway pots like in this session.
Post flop should I take a cbet/fold check/call or check/fold line?
I can see, this is one of your first posts, so welcome to CC forum. I think, you played this hand very well.
The isolation raise preflop could be a bit larger, but its splitting hairs, and 4BB is ok.
I dont think, you can continue with TT on a A high board against 3 opponents. Its just to likely, that someone have an ace and outflopped you, and then you are drawing to 2 outs. So I like your decision to check-fold and even more so, when there is a bet and a call behind you.
This time you actually did have the best hand, and thats always a bit annoying, when it goes to showdown and you see, what they had. But its important to not be results oriented in poker. And if you repeat this 100 times, I can assure you, that continuing with TT on this board against 3 opponents is going to lose you money.
Your game was pretty good throughout the hand. There are some clues that can help you figure out who the less strong players at a table are. One of them is the stack. As you can see, the LP has 72 bb and the UTG limper has 66 bb.
Another key is what you have been able to observe from the previous hands. You say that the LP has a high continuation bet%. This means that he sees a lot of folds at this table. In fact, if he expands his hand range to cbet, this is a profitable strategy for him.
So if we decide to cbet ourselves, we are denying equity to his entire wide range, which villain LP called from preflop, with the aim of knocking us down in the postflop.
Another point to consider is the % of times that the villain UTG limp. If he does it all the time, his range can range from very weak hands to very strong hands and in that case, our cbet will perform better than when UTG only limp a few times.
With regard to the chip leader CO there is not much to worry about. Most likely, he wanted to enter the boat, purely for speculation. So his range is expected to have a lot of fold equity against our cbet flop.
