      Hello ragney,

      Preflop: I don't really like the Call actually, BU has mid-stack and also we don't know much of MP3-s play, only that he is going to SD a lot. Therefore I'd rather just fold the hand.

      As played
      Flop: As we hit our TP+OESD, we can likely continue, donking out ain't a very good idea since we aren't planning to go broke, and rather just take the odds and Call, therefore Check/Calling is likely better.
      Turn: As he decides to shove in then we likely ain't getting the correct equity against his shoving range, and for avoiding any kind of variance I am also Check/Folding. Nice fold!

      Best regards.
