      Hello jeszkar,

      Not much you can do there, pretty standard fold with our mid-pair there. Nice hand!

      Best Regards.

      Hi jeszkar,

      Yes a good fold. You've had 2 callers pre-flop, seen a King and had a bet and a raise on the flop. Your mid-pair top kicker does not hold much value now. There is a pretty good chance that at least 1 of them has a king in their range. A fold is in order. Not a good idea to get involved multi-way with a medium strength hand.

      Thanks
