      Full Tilt No-Limit Hold'em, $0.50 BB (6 handed) - Full Tilt Converter Tool from

      saw flop

      BB ($82.65)
      UTG ($50)
      MP ($32.30)
      CO ($135.35)
      Hero (Button) ($50)
      SB ($22.90)

      Preflop: Hero is Button with J, 9
      2 folds, CO bets $1.50, Hero calls $1.50, 1 fold, BB calls $1

      Flop: ($4.75) 8, 4, Q (3 players)
      BB checks, CO bets $5.50, Hero raises to $16, 1 fold, CO raises to $133.85 (All-In), Hero calls $32.50 (All-In)

      Turn: ($101.75) Q (2 players, 2 all-in)

      River: ($101.75) 6 (2 players, 2 all-in)

      Total pot: $101.75 | Rake: $3

      Against such an aggressive player I thought that I have some fold equity that will make raising the most + EV play but am I having any when he bets pot 3 way? It doesnt look like he has any intention of folding his hand but is rather betting to protect it and get max value : KK+, AQ sets and A high flushes define his range imo.

      So should I be more inclined to call and play the turn ? I am still stacking him if he has a strong value hand if I hit but I can fold peacefully if I miss and he pots again and probably save some bucks.

      PS: just observed that it's a small overbet and I think this enforces my above beliefs

      Since I think he wouldn´t really overbet that spot with air or AK I would just call and if he checks then take pot away on the turn.
      You have very good equity, but without any fold equity you´re still flipping
      If you had smt like pair +fd or A high fd I like raising flop and getting all-in, since then he can easily get all-in with worse flushdraws
