      Hey AKM247,

      This is a very bad spot to bluff, you have a 3-way pot and the drawiest board you can imagine. Just check/fold unless you improve you hand on any later street. Also in the articles it says to check/fold if you don't have a made hand or strong draw and the board is drawy and/or you face 2 or more opponents.

      Regards,
