      Fold preflop is the best action I know.

      What about if we choose to play. What would you do on this T? His r into 2 opponents is super strong but since he raises so small I almost have to call.

      What about the R? 67 came, flush is here, better two pair... His bet seems like vbet a lot.

      Like you said, preflop is not acall.. I can understand raising against some people but not completing.. It's too weak multiway.

      Against the turn raise I think you have to fold... You get called and then face a raise as well.. your hand only gets worse, it has about the same value as KQ here, it's not as strong as Q8 for example. You basically still only beat one pair hands only. In some cases, if it was limped pot and HU you can be up against AA but that's about it.

      River I'd say also fold.. when you call turn you assume he can be semi-bluffing somehow and then the river completes most semi-bluffs yet still call. Usually that is a mistake.
