    Default Strange multiway hand - turn semibluff

    I really have no idea what was happening but with a fairly strong draw on the turn and such a weak flop/turn bet decided to try a semibluff. It worked this time, but for next time how should I size this? Does anyone just call?

    Raise is a little small pre.

    Postflop play is probably fine, but the thing is that calling is extremely +EV as it is. Your draw could have very big implied odds when you hit it, especially the J which will give you the nuts on a board with two one card straights possible. I'm inclined to call.

    I normally raise 3BB + 1bb per limper now. What would you recommend for pre sizing?

    Do you think we can stack off if a red J hits? I wouldn't expect anyone with the dummy end to pay off so it would have to be someone with just Q that's called down

    Agree with Renton, I'd probably go 6-8bb here.

    I'd rather size it to go HU than getting two callers and being OOP.
