      Hi Daisuke,

      Preflop: Since MP2 seems to be a big fish we can also 3-bet for value and to isolate him.

      As played I wouldn't call the flop caught in between two players AND with BB being so short. Why? Because BB is very likely to shove a lot of hands there considering the money in the pot and his stack size.

      We also have that won't improve often and as you can see one of our 4 outs is not even clean.

      So I would simply fold the flop.
