      Hello DaPhunk,

      Rather fold it on turn. Your implied odds ain't that great and we will never know even where we stand with our hand. Might be already drawing dead.

      Best regards.

      i don't know the maths involved in this kind of weird flop spot, but i'd fold. it would be very different if utg and mp2 were switched. as is though, i doubt we have the implieds.

      on the turn i think i'd fold, as MP2 should be slowplaying turned boats very often on the flop. think about it, he doesn't need to raise to get value from UTG, he doesn't need to raise vs draws, and flatting looks weak, so lets him get more value from other players.
