      Hello abc794,

      Preflop: Depends really how many loose players are behind us to make the Call very good. Since just against MP2 it ain't the best idea while he ain't even fully stacked.
      Postflop: After he decides to give up the turn then we could easily even take stabs there as we floated with mid-pair on flop. But as played the river is kinda marginal. You see yourself that the guy is even making almost pot size raise. Is it really worth going for the thin value? While better straights are possible and most likely he will fold anyways his worse holdings against our raise. As what even happens that he decides to ship it and you still decide to go for the split at the best. :(

      Best regards.
