      BB: $59.60 (119.2 bb)
      UTG: $102.58 (205.2 bb)
      MP: $78.50 (157 bb)
      CO: $40.05 (80.1 bb)
      Hero (BTN): $78.53 (157.1 bb)
      SB: $83.32 (166.6 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with T K
      UTG raises to $1.50, MP calls $1.50, CO folds, Hero calls $1.50, 2 folds

      Flop: ($5.25) A 3 J (3 players)
      UTG bets $3.67, MP raises to $22.50, Hero raises to $77.03 and is all-in

      UTG is Reg 15/13, 83 cBet
      MP is fish 35/0, 4,3 AF in 40h

      When fish raises so big on flop I don't think I can profitably call, and if I shove I can make reg fold stronger hands (basically everything other than AA/JJ/33) so I can get it in vs fish, where I should be ok.

      What do u think about my play here? Did I overplay my draw this deep? Should I have folded such a strong draw? The thing is I don't think I have FE vs Fish here..
      Frankly, I said ZOMG royal flush draw, his raise is too big, I MUST get it in here, look at all teh $$$!

      i came across this spot a few times, and the common solution to this is a call.

      when MP raises he has a strong hand hes not folding, so we can ignore him.

      lets look at UTG, if we raise, hes only going in with sets, but if we call, he could go in weaker, maybe top pair, straight draw, worse flush draw and he could even raise over. so the benefits of calling is that UTG goes in with a wider range, and our hand is too strong to fold.
