Default TP with a Draw

No reads. First orbit. $100 NL Party Poker

UTG limps, UTG+1 ($100) min raises, UTG +2 ($30) calls, I ($100) call with Jc 9c, BB calls, UTG calls.

Flop is:
4c, 9h, 5c

Check, check, UTG+1 bets $4, UTG+2 makes it $15 to go.

Action's on you. Got a plan?

alright fine. top pair is not good. i think you would agree with that. if it is, someone is telling you it isn't. i am not sure about you, but the overbet usually says something at such micro limits. hard to tell from your details but it costs you 14-15 to call a pot of 20 something? thats less than 2:1 and not giving you proper odds to draw to the 4th best flush. i get out especially as this is the first orbit and you don't likely have reads on these donks yet.

so you pushed right....? what happened?

in addition, there are others to act behind you. semi bluffing is good against 1 opponent, maybe 2 if they are both donks, but 3? utg check is suspicious.

Okay...here I'll help you a bit for clarity. The pot on the flop is $10 (5 players x $2 a piece). Then on the flop the pfr bets $4 and is raised to $15. Okay, this is where it gets tricky. If you add $10 (original pot) + $4 (initial post flop bet) + $15 (the raise)= $29 in the middle. $15 to me. And no, I don't think top pair is good.

Back to you, Brunson.

Why? He limped called in a multiway pot. What's so suspicious about that?

I agree. Semi-bluffing multiple players is suicidal unless your draw is huge. This one is not. It's rather weak.

Thanks Daniel. Still not getting odds, and you still have players to act behind. Since there are 2 diamonds on the board so anyone is a jackass to not lead out with trips (IMHO), so to your point, utg 1 that checked the flop is a moron, unless he was sure someone would raise this pot with the intention to raising. in short scottie, u don't have much, and your draw could be dead. these low stakes games are a joke and so easy to beat. don't get caught in a bad spot when you can crush these people playing good solid poker.

You're right about it not being close. Easy call unless the table has been unusually aggressive preflop. It's at least 3 way and at least 1 of the blinds will come along. I'm on the button. Cheap minraise. I'll look at a flop here every time.

And this is pretty much the flop we're looking for. Unfortunately they're going crazy in front of me. I don't love a 9 or J because there could already be a set out...So really all I have is my flush draw. Fold equity is minimal at best. with no reads I'm tempted to fold. If I play I need to push and I don't want to play for my stack here.
