SB checks, BB checks, CO checks, Hero ???
Assuming all players have a pair higher than 6s -- and that is what I did assume -- should I bet here?

Also assuming no two players have the *same* pair, then each player has an 89% chance of NOT drawing trips except for CO who has improved his chances of not drawing trips to 92%. So the chances of all of them not drawing trips is .89 x .89 x .92 = .72 so there is a 28% chance 1 of them drew trips -- ignoring all better hands.

Similarly, the chances of them not getting two pair are .84 * .84 * .82 = 0.57

So the questions:
Clearly I should bet for value, as there a lot of worse draws that might call, but what to do if raised? At the micros, I'm folding, as they don't bluff enough post-draw, but what is "correct"?
Action facing a single bet post draw?
Action vs a raise and a call post-draw?

Cheers,
