This is a discussion on $Freeroll NLHE MTT: I think this was the right fold within the online poker forums, in the Tournament Hand Analysis section; I am really only beating a missed straight draw or total air, right? There could also be 99 or JJ in here, perhaps even 88
I can go either way and 3-bet or call here. The downside of 3-betting is, you are building a huge pot against a fairly strong range. The downside of flatting is, you invite other players to see a flop as well, and AQo dont play to well multiway.
You flopped a gutshot with two overs, but with 3 opponents in the hand I am totally onboard with checking and trying to see a free turn card.
Big blind is leading into 3 players on a very obvious board. He can easily have a T in his range. If he has it, you have 3 outs to chop the pot. And you still have one guy left to act behind you, who could also have a T. Good disciplined fold
I don't see someone bluffing here in a 4 way so it seems like a pretty easy fold to me I usually wouldn't 4 bet A Q preflop, this really depends on the dynamic of the board. In this scenario you could 4 bet and get maybe a call and go heads up. Then you miss the flop, could have gone check check and then it would be an easy spot to bluff for the other guy once the queen comes. What do you do then? I don't know, it really depends. You lost the least amount of money the way you played it, looks fine by me.
4 players are on the turn. BB puts down almost half of the pot. The more players involved in the hand, the stronger the hand must be to bet on such a board. In my opinion, it is difficult to call here even with two pairs. The main thing during the time to understand that your top pair is not suitable. Because you are waiting for the opponent's bet and another difficult choice on the river.
