      What's your plan on the flop? Ck/call vs MP?

      Why not cbet that flop? I can see plenty worse that can call us.

      not really worst thing to try keep pot small and let him barrel/bluff with worse hands, since there are a lot worse cards that come and if it goes bet and raise you can get away your hand cheaply.
      betting turn and river for value is fine. I might bet river even 3$, since it is hard worse hands to call and he may try to bluff you out if you make small blocking bet

      Ty :)
      @Bogdan: If i would be IP I would consider a bet here very often, but since I'm oop and flop is veery drawy + I'm against 2opponents so either SB raises me-I fold or MP raises-i fold. if at least one of them call and turn :heart: I must give up it. + there are many hands in his range that hit this board/or have alot equity to win @sd. Like kaitz i prefer to keep pot small in this sitoation cos there are not many weaker hands that will pay me off ever.. There are soo many arguments not to bet :)

      Best regards :)

      Sure, there's many hands that have equity versus us, but we are trapped between 2 players.

      If we check we do keep the pot small but also give another free card to our opponents and potentially give up on the pot and with our hand it would be a shame (given we have the best hand here so often).

      If you were OOP to both opponents I can see a merit in checking and giving up or hoping to get to SD but we are only OOP to one of them. But I agree it's a close spot either way.
