      No idea what to do on the flop, alot of strenght has been shown, sets are possible, I didn't think the straight was likely, - but then straight draws are also possible - but then who would raise them :)

      Hello p0rkus,

      Since it's a multiway pot then I would very often expect MP2 to have a pretty strong hand since he decides to minraise on such flop. But again when we look at the limit, its NL2 and people tend to do very crazy stuff there. So often from my own view I would find a fold there but in case I think since it's NL2 it ain't wrong to go broke there.

      Best regards.
