      The minraise makes it look like your flush outs might not be good. The A :diamond: is likely out there somewhere, if not a made flush against three opponents, so I think saving yourself from any difficult decisions is good here.

      I confess I'd have a hard time letting go of this hand. This raises look just so weak... the minraise is always kind of scary, but sometimes it means weakness.

      I'm either folding or going broke. I dont think either is wrong. Against a donk and a reraise, folding might be a better option. Against just one opp, I'd call.

      Against just one opponent, I would raise and try to go broke early as possible. Against two, get out cheaply.

      Yes, I meant going broke, not calling :D


      I think it is possible to go broke against two as well though. Against someone with the A :diamond: we're still ahead, since he'll only have 8 outs against us.

      Against a made flush, we often still have outs for making a better flush.


      Although I agree that folding is perfectly fine as well.
