Hello poker lovers,in this hand I am not sure at all if I was supposed to fold or continue so I wanted to ask your opinion. Here is the hand:

CO (42.5 BB) Call

BTN (53 BB) Call

SB (69.8 BB) Call

BB ( HERO) (87.20 BB) Check with 6c 8h

FLOP: 8c 5c 8s

SB Check

BB Bet 2 BB

CO Call

BTN Fold

SB Call

Turn: Qc

SB Check

BB Bet 5 BB

CO Call

SB Fold

River: Jc

BB Bet 14 BB

CO Raise 28 BB

BB Call

CO shows Ac 6s

My question to you is: Was I supposed to fold after he raised me or not given the fact that I only had a 6 and he could have bigger clubs than me? ( just like the Ac that he had)

What stakes and what site is this? Also, do you know what the effective stack sizes are?

On the flop, you should be betting around 6bb rather than 2bb because its a 4-way limped pot with tons of draws. You need to bet for value and protection against flush and straight draws.

Same thing on the turn, you sizing is way too small. When you bet so small, you are inviting people to call and suck out on you. I’d recommend anywhere from 2/3 to a pot-sized bet depending upon how your opponent has been playing and the range you put him on.

The river is simply a check/fold or you can try a very small blocker bet. With 4 clubs on the board and a 6-high club in your holdings, you can’t bet for value here and expect to get called by a weaker club. So betting for value is not an option. A small blocker bet might get a crying call from a pair of Queens. Check/calling is bad because villain will only be betting stronger flushes here, checking trips, and checking weak flushes. So the most optimal line (in general) is check / folding the river to a decent river bet.
