      CO: $14.96 (93.5 bb)
      BTN: $7.36 (46 bb)
      SB: $1.69 (10.6 bb)
      BB: $19.63 (122.7 bb) 19/13/2.5/5.0/33/48
      Hero (MP): $16.56 (103.5 bb) 24/20/1.5/16.7/60/49

      Preflop: Hero is MP with T A
      Hero raises to $0.64, CO calls $0.64, 2 folds, BB calls $0.48

      Flop: ($2) 5 3 9 (3 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $1.28, CO raises to $3.04, BB folds, Hero raises to $15.92, CO calls $11.28

      I've always wondered what the best play in this situation is. I can call as he's giving me decent odds but I if I don't hit the turn and he bets big or shoves I'll have to fold. My flush draw has max equity on the flop so I thought its best to shove here itself but I'm not really happy with the decision.

      Turn: ($30.64) A (2 players)
      River: ($30.64) 8 (2 players)

      $30.64 pot ($1.38 rake)
      Final Board: 5 3 9 A 8
      CO showed 5 5 and lost (-$14.96 net)
      BB mucked and lost (-$0.64 net)
      Hero showed T A and won $29.26 ($14.30 net)

      If you think:
      1) you have some FE
      2) his minraise isn't only sets/2p/pair+FD so he can also do it with Khi FD or A9
      then you can go broke I guess.

      But since it's 3way he reps very hard a set so for those odds I just make the call.

      Hello maheepsangari,

      I'd rather CB the flop a bit bigger to avoid raises and as played I'd just call it for the given odds, his raise in a multiway pot is rather strong. Unless you assume he has a lot of 9x hands in his range which raise like that.

      Best Regards.
