      We get an early raise, and 2 callers..
      Standaard chart says we have to fold A7s ...
      But in this situation . what To do?
      En what if we were not on BU but on SB or BB ?
      And what range could we better raise with en which one call with from the BU in this situation?

      Fold, as told by standard chart?
      call, because we like to play multiway with this hand ?
      raise big, flink, to get all to fold and because we are in position?

      Hi Jonkey,

      Preflop: Considering MP2 is short if we squeeze as a bluff we are committed vs him.

      On top of that UTG2 is short so he may stack off lighter.

      Because of that I wouldn't 3bet.

      And since UTG+2 and MP2 are short we can't really call either. So folding is best.
