      Another blind defend here. First raiser was stealing 33% from otherwise pretty tight 13/11 play. Other two villains are both very loose, 76/0 for MP2 one and 37/14 for MP3.

      Supposing MP3 doesn't shove his whole stack here but reraises a reasonable size, what do I still call, or do I always lay it down? I didn't really see the straight here, even though I guess I should since 97s is in his calling range, and he didn't raise. He's pretty aggressive on the turn (7.0)

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Hello giliNL,

      Preflop: Just fold the hand. We don't want to play with such a horrible hand in multiway pot which very likely will happen.

      As played
      Postflop: Why do you bet so smallish on flop? You are giving away perfect odds to draw with any hand. Rather make a normal bet size and Bet/Fold the turn with normal size as well. You most likely are beat there vs his shove.

      Best regards.

      yeah I was trying to find good spots to defend my blinds today, was sort of hit and miss but I'll take this hand out of my range for that then ;-)

      Was getting attacked alot from BU/CO today so decided to fight back.. guess I'll leave that until I've got a bit more experience :)
