      Hey. MP3 donks 4bb a lot, so during this hand I decided to raise here to get free river.

      Afterwards I think I should've folded directly, because even if he calls, there are many cards I don't want to see - spade, J, 8, T. My overcard outs ain't clean (I could be behind vs 97, T9, 86, J8, 77, 99-TT + he could be on flush draw) and I have backdoor flushdraw only. What's your opinion about this? Thanks

      I understand your thoughts and on drier boards I would certainly raise it up. Only this board is just filled with draws that it is pretty hard to grind a profit by direct fold equity & virtually no equity

      I think folding is a fine play but also raise/folding is an OK play if you think you can just take it down often enough risking 1.2 to win 1.6
