      Dealt to Hero J:club: A:club:

      UTG raises to $0.40, UTG+1 calls $0.40, CO raises to $1.20, Hero calls $1.20, fold, fold, UTG calls $0.80, UTG+1 calls $0.80

      FLOP ($5.10) T:heart: Q:diamond: 4:spade:

      UTG checks, UTG+1 checks, CO bets $2.50, Hero folds, UTG raises to $7.30 (AI), UTG+1 folds, CO folds

      UTG wins $9.60

      UTG: 39/9 23h
      UTG+1 77/9 57h
      CO: 68/42 3bet 29 (7), cbet 83 (6), fcbet 71 (7) 31h

      note CO:
      squeze to 9 bb vs 3 players w 23o

      he is so loose, so folding would be waek. Maybe 4bet would better, to take initiative and cbet?

      Hey SpeedFANat1c,

      Calling against this opponent is fine, although you should expect to play a multiway pot a decent amount after you cold-call. Might be a solid option if UTG/UTG+1 are fish.

      If you didn't want to play multiway, turning your hand into a bluff is great if CO is squeezing so wide.

      Folding gutshot is fine on the flop, although if you were HU you should be floating at least one street here.
