      UTG: $2.73
      UTG+1: $2.00
      Hero (MP): $2.40
      MP+1: $4.82
      LP: $2.46
      CO: $2.57
      BTN: $1.97
      SB: $3.60

      SB posts SB $0.01, BB posts BB $0.02

      Pre Flop: ($0.03) Hero has 2:heart: 2:diamond:

      fold, fold, Hero calls $0.02, fold, LP calls $0.02, fold, BTN calls $0.02, fold, BB checks

      Flop: ($0.09, 4 players) 2:spade: T:spade: 7:spade:
      BB bets $0.04, fold, LP calls $0.04, fold

      Turn: ($0.17, 2 players) 9:diamond:
      BB checks, LP checks

      River: ($0.17, 2 players) 6:spade:
      BB bets $0.08, LP calls $0.08

      BB shows 8:club: 8:spade: (Flush, Ten High) (PreFlop 81%, Flop 93%, Turn 95%)
      LP mucks 4:spade: 4:heart: (Flush, Ten High) (PreFlop 19%, Flop 7%, Turn 5%)
      BB wins $0.32

      I was two idea in my mind: raise or fold. The bet is very weak on river, but I'm still in a multiway pot, and somebody easily can have flush already.

      Hello jeszkar,

      Definitely folding is the weakest play here. If we are in such a multiway pot we can as well even play it rather passively and Call and hope to hit FH or something similar. We don't have the stronger set either. But even raising would be an option here and protect your hand depending on the opponents.

      Best Regards.

      There are 3 spades and 3 opponents. Even if I think nobody has 2 spades in his hand I probably won't be able to make fold hands with one spade (except if they think I have the nut flush already). Calling the raise would give them a cheap turn card which also would be pretty bad.

      Why should be calling bad? We still can hit our FH and they may pay us with their flush. It's not something that you can't improve anymore. :D
