      yeah it's an easy fold. not only do you not have TP/overpair, but you are multiway with the rest of the world so your equity drops considerably. set mining preflop is fine, but on this flop and with this action letting go is pretty much the only play to make.

      also important to consider is that there are still 2 streets to play if you decide to continue and the board is pretty much guaranteed to get extremely ugly later.

      looks to me like a fishy hand with monsters mixed in :D

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: Yes, I agree that this is a fold here especially when we can't even continue on many turn/river cards. Plus at least one player is likely to have a better pair and we have no redraws.
