      MP3 stats 23/23 AF:4,3 3bet:11 WTSD:15 W$SD:25 cbet flop:91 after 137 hands.

      BU stats 86/7 AF:1 after 14 hands.

      I think pre flop we can call, because we have good implied odds.

      On flop, when MP3 checks I think he has overcards. Fish bets very small and we have middle pair with GS and backdoor FD, so I think it's a call. If we don't hit on the turn, we can turn our hand into bluff if BU continues to show weakness.

      What do you think?

      Preflop: u dont... 76s sucks and doesnt flop the nuts (unlike small PPs which can flopsets). When u flop draws u are still an underdog vs pairs. U are also not crushing overpairs with twolairs (75 vs 25% equity). Your flush draws may get dominated by higher flush draws from AJs and KQs ans AKs and AQs.

      I call here only because bu entered ths hand. He improves our direct pot odds on a call (getting 20% pot odds here) and he is a big fish so he can make many mistakes vs us

      Flop: can we fold better? Can we gain value from worse? Is our hand strong enough to continue? Maybe this should help u think abt whether we should call or raise or fold.
