      Hi,

      well, on one hand your pot odds are sligtly bigger than 4:1, so you need to win in more that 18-19% of the time here. it`s quite hard to put them on a range on NL 10, but you will have enough equity against almost any range...
      On other hand flop action obviously signals a stenght here... So I guess you are definatelly behind... therefore, I would fold this...

      the other thing is, we can put one on top pair, but I have no clue what the other one is holding... because if he holds any kind of straight draw, then your equity falls dramatically and if he hold some kind og overpairs then your equity is close to call... but again I see no point in this marginal call... just maybe to challenge the variance :D

      so my conclusion is easy fold

      Against one this would be an easy All-in for me, but after the raise of UTG you are beat to often, so i think you should fold.

      Plz dont post results btw.

      Easy fold against two opps with overcard on board.

      Easy all-in against one.
