      Preflop: Hero is CO with 9, 8.
      3 folds, MP2 raises to $0.08, MP3 folds, Hero calls $0.08, BU folds, SB raises to $0.24, BB folds, MP2 calls $0.16, Hero calls $0.16.

      Turn: ($4.26) 4 (2 players)


      River: ($4.26) J (2 players)


      Final Pot: $4.26.

      I pondered the pre flop call of the 3bet but I just love sooted connectors in large multi way pots.

      On the flop, do I have any other choice but to get it in? I ran the hand in equilab against his exact hand (A :diamond: T :diamond:) and it's basically a coin flip, but what about his range?

      villain is 18/12

      I think that your suited connectors are not that good preflop in 3bet pot. In the long run you will be loosing money, or get in trouble with just mediocre hands. But I think that you have enough equity in this spot to go for a flip, since against his range A9s+, ATo+, 77, TT-QQ, you have 51% of equity.

      Hello thebaptist333,

      Preflop: Rather fold it preflop vs the 3bet and even against just an open-raise cause I doubt that you have such a huge edge on the opponent and know around how to play profitable those hands. By just calling and hoping hit you wont do it. Vs the 3bet it should be standard fold cause you wont have the implied odds on postflop.

      As played
      Postflop: Not much to comment, if you even called preflop then you are never folding such a draw.

      Best Regards.
