      River: ($1.98 - 39.60 bb) J:spade: (2 Players)

      MP1 was 22/8/2 over 448.
      MP3 was 16/13/6 over 379.

      I called as I wanted to play with the fish and my hand wasn't terrible.
      The guys behind me weren't squeezing light.

      Could I take a stab here?
      MP3 will be straightforward here, so it's likely he has just a few OC.
      MP1 is a wild guess but I have FE vs his low PPs etc.

      I decided to call as MP1 bet seemed big and I figure I had good implied odds if I hit my BD straight.

      Folding unimproved.

      I don't really like flatting KQo against this guy here. I would either 3bet it or fold it.

      Just check the flop here. We don't really want to mess with overcards on a well-coordinated board being three-way.

      As played, calling the turn is definitely a good option since we do have quite a nice draw here.

      Folding the river is standard.
