      Flop: ($1.90) 5:spade: 6:spade: 9:heart: (3 players)

      Anon. tables.

      UTG was playing something like 23/20 for about 90 hands. Didn`t wrote down his exact stats.

      MP is 55/34 40% agg. freq. 88 hands

      OTF? I want to play for MP stack but i don`t want UTG to shove over me?

      I don`t think i can fold. I don`t want to call on this board. I can`t really raise/fold vs UTG because he might overplay some overpairs or continue with some strong draws. => rereaise and call them both?

      Now, looking at MP bet sizing, i doubt he has a very strong hand, so it`s an easy reraise/call vs the fish?

      Lead.

      People don't cbet too weak here but call at least once with bluffcatchers that check back. Furthermore, leading gets more money in if people get all 'raise for protection' tendency so you bet/3bet.

      As played, I think you don't get it in too well IMO, you are basically hopping CO has many 76, 75, 96, 65 and flushdraws that play the same because your bottom set can be in quite some tough shape vs a raise/shove range after you cold 3bet the flop.
