      A straight is quite obvious? Do I have to lay it down? Probably...?

      I wouldn´t lay it down, simply because overpair (included aces) would play also that way. Also the opponent might have pair+draw or two lower pair.

      i dont see any overpair(88+) not raising preflop so imo overpairs are not in his range but a set or a straight certainly could be and we are in an unraised pot . you can maximum hope for pair + draw . i would call flop but if he had beted more i would have folded in an unraised pot on turn . as he played it you had to call bets <1/2 pot but i dont see you much often ahead here

      Against the range 44-88, T8o, 98o, 87o, 86o, 76o, 65o, 43o, which are possible hands which mostly favour our opponent, we have about 40% equity, so calling this down has to be ok from that point of view. It is difficult to know if our opponent is going to protect a made straight on this flop, which is what his raise is doing. Two of the five have already folded, so he is trying to thin the field here. So, it looks like he is playing 34, 45, 56 or 67, and wants to protect that against a (better) straight draw. But that is only true if he has any idea what he is doing. A fish can have anything here, so your reads become important. If there is a good chance you have the best hand, then getting the money in is correct.

      Also, you have posted a blind from UTG in this hand, which isn't good practice. Is this something you normally do?
