      Hey SPeedFANat1c,

      Probably fine to fold this preflop. Sure, you probably get the "odds" to call, but this type of hand is going to put you in so many awkward spots post-flop.

      Flop is one such example. Calling kinda sucks. Folding kinda sucks. Even if your hand does well vs their ranges it's pretty unlikely you can get such a weak hand to showdown multi-way. I don't think there is much in it between calling/folding here.

      On turn it's probably a fold. You actually only need 25% equity to call multiway. With your open-ender and occasional 2-pair/trip outs you are probably close to that, but it's just about a fold because some of the outs are tainted.
