      bet the flop yourself, no one's going to bluff.

      as played river is kinda interesting spot, let's ask equilab:

      Board: 6:club: 4:diamond: J:heart:  A:spade:  K:diamond:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      MP3    20.00%  20.00%   0.00% { 4h4s }
      CO     23.20%  23.20%   0.00% { JJ, 66, AKs, AJs, AKo }
      BU     56.80%  56.80%   0.00% { JJ, 66, AKs, AJs }

      sb should be more inclined to squeeze with AK and AJo type of hands, of course they both could have more AK/AJo but i don't think it's too likely.
      in any case it's actually quite thin value because twopair (specially AJ) may manage to find a fold vs a raise shove.

      being 3way i think i prefer to just call, as weak as it seems. with calling we might get a light call from mp and won't isolate against better. (fold to a mp shove)

      we could also do something like minraise/fold for thin value (doubt that we are going to be shoved on by AK). it feels pretty weird, but i also clearly feel that we shouldn't jeopardize our stack with bottom set in a 3way pot that once was a 4way pot. :f_biggrin: feel that calling is quite better though.

      [edit: improved quality, missed some details before ;( and a shameful misinput :facepalm: ]
