      I think you should raise turn against mp3 who is obv a fish player for value! He is never letting go of any str8 and he is always calling his FD.

      It gets tricky if bb raises us. Im leaving that on for Kaitz to decide.

      Don't think he will ever raise with worse after both opponents show strength, so easy raise/fold here.

      Thx for the evaluation!

      I can't just call since if he bets pot on river it would be another hard decision.
      Raising protects my hand, gives me more information and let my decide the showdown price.

      Hi,

      I would also raise/fold on the turn although against midstacks I would likely be pot committed. If I make it 6$ on the turn then I have to call BB shove and MP3 turn bet size doesn´t also seem like having flush.

      best regards,
