      Hello Filipstan,

      Depends a lot how good you are postflop but more often I'd just fold the hand for the reason that we could face pretty difficult spots postflop and there ain't much to hit with such a hand, most likely hoping for straight. Because if we even hit our flush, we will never know if it's good enough.

      As played, I guess I'd rather just donk it out there to protect from any kind of draw. As we decided to play tricky, I guess I'd just fold to the MP3 raise, he likely has us beat there, our kicker ain't that wrong either to go broke. Our hand ain't that strong, kinda taking this as freeplay and there I wouldn't go broke with just trips.

      Best regards.
