      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:

      Play hand

      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (7 handed)

      Known players:

      Flop: ($1.65) A, J, T (3 players)
      Hero bets $0.50, MP2 calls $0.50, MP3 calls $0.50.

      Turn: ($3.15) 8 (3 players)
      Hero bets $3.00, MP2 calls $3.00, MP3 raises to $24.58(All-In), Hero folds, MP2 calls $4.37(All-In).

      River: ($38.1) 3 (3 players)

      Final Pot: $38.1.
      Results follow:

      MP3 shows a straight, jack high(9 7).
      BU shows a pair of jacks(J K).
      MP2 shows three of a kind, tens(T T).

      MP3 wins with a straight, jack high(9 7).

      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 :)
