      Poker Stars, $0.25/$0.50 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players

      BB: $78.74 (157.5 bb)
      UTG: $52.45 (104.9 bb)
      Hero (MP): $70.35 (140.7 bb)
      CO: $53.83 (107.7 bb)
      BTN: $54.06 (108.1 bb)
      SB: $50 (100 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP with A 3
      UTG folds, Hero raises to $1.50, CO calls $1.50, BTN folds, SB calls $1.25, BB folds

      Flop: ($5) 7 T 5 (3 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $3.30, CO calls $3.30, SB raises to $12, Hero calls $8.70, CO raises to $52.33 and is all-in, SB folds, Hero calls $40.33

      SB 26/21/10 after 226 hands
      SB callopen 4%
      flop chR 0% (0/3)
      AFq flop 31%

      CO 18/15/7 after 711 hands
      CO callopen 12%
      AFq flop 39%
      wtsd/w$sd 23/53

      After getting chRaised on the flop, I have the odds to call vs SB.

      The push from CO really surprised me. After SB folded (which is also very surprising), potodds are 33% for me to call.
      I dont quite have that vs a set (only 26%), but

      1/ I dont think he could have all combos of sets here, after just calling my cbet 3way in the middle

      2/ I dominate all possible draws, which would greatly increase my equity (i'm favourite even vs strong combodraws like 9:c8)

      So I think based on point 1 & 2, I have an oddscall here.

      What do you think?

      Hi D,

      I personally would expect at least some set and 2pair combos to raise your cbet instead of flatting it so would discount some from CO's range. I think after he calls cbet/shoves vs raise you can be OK with calling here given the pot odds. I'd imagine some flushdraws to play like that, maybe some hands like KT, JJ since CO seems on the tighter side and might not 3bet JJ in BU.
