      Did I play this well? I thought I was getting good pot odds since it was three handed. Would it be ok to call if it were two handed?

      Even if they exclusively have sets it's +EV to call here...you have 36% equity and there is already money in the pot. Call is correct.

      Just as a side note, calling is better than 3betting.

      You want as many people in as possible when you are drawing to the nuts in every single way since your equity doesn't drop almost at all but the pot will be bloated so you increase your EV.

      Hello wizo656,

      Yeah, while having both guys in the pot and they could easily even their outs as for FH outs and we have a FD+GS which should give us enough of equity while we we would need ~31% which of course doesn't have rake excluded but it should be still good enough vs their ranges. So Check/Call/Broke.

      Would it be ok to call if it were two handed?

      Depends a lot how we would play the hand. Are you talking about Check/Call or are you talking about going broke vs UTG range? Against what kind of UTG we are? If he is a tight UTG then would it even make sense to go for Check/Raise while we are so deep cause I don't believe that we have much fold equity nor we wont have enough of equity to play for the stacks while being deep.

      Best Regards.
