Reads would be good. I really don't like BB c/3betting this board and don't think I would cap. It really smells like a set or a lucky QJ. I like the turn call, river is standard, if it were heads up I'd be tempted to bluff this river, especially if I had seen villain fold on a scary board before.

I want to isolate MP2. Bad Idea ? I should be more alerted to c/r. Guess the only hand playing c/3bet i can beat, is AK.

*grunch*

I'm not raising the turn on such a coordinated board. I don't think I'm capping the flop after BB check raises the field.

How often are you winning when the flop goes bet-raise-reraise?

flop cap is pretty bad. we have no [img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img] redraw and if we are behind, we are way behind.

Fold the turn. Your A's are dead and the J's are pretty dirty.

IMO flop cap is pretty bad: you don't have equity to raise here, and also MP2 raise you already (wouldn't you like to see what his move is?)

what? ... i assume you mean BB
what hands do you thinking you're going to isolate on this board?
why do you want to isolate a player that checked-3bet!

the turn couldn't be worse, i don't care that we have a gut shot now (split+flush already on the board means I'm out)

Grunch:

Cap the flop? I am folding it. You have just been check/3bet and I have never seen anyone bet like this with less than a set. You could easily be behind both opponents, but I think you are certainly behind the check raiser. In that event you have two possible outs and the A hearts is tainted. Even in the unlikely event that you are still ahead there are many cards that could kill you and you have no backdoor flush possibiliy of your own. You have top pair against two opponents who are betting very strongly. It is going to be very expensive to take this hand to the river, so let it go. Does this make me weak/tight?

Do you say fold, or call?

I think I call the flop, but it's probably a pretty bad call. No way we are good on turn, and no good draw so I fold. I wonder what vilains could have here. MP2 AK with As, BB QJs/TT/99 maybe?
