Why did we call with 45s in this spot? Was it to bluff a at a 5-way pot with a tricky player checking to
We should be evaluating our decisions post-flop based on where we are, not where we intended to be.
Yeah, we've got four villains with us here, but one has indicated he's giving up, BB isn't showing interest, and UTG may be tricky but is he so tricky to check a monster in this specific spot (answer probably not, but okay don't rule it out). The only one left to act is an ABC player that is probably going to tell us right away whether he's going to the felt or not with this hand.
As I said, I have no problem with a check in the hopes of seeing whether the river makes this hand more tasty, but taking a stab here seems justified as well.
