      Hello,

      Yeah, the board is kinda drawy but still I don't think that MP2 is going to raise any draws so high in multiway pot, likely that he has a set there. But I think I am going broke there also against midstack because of his stats.

      Best regards,
      Rensu

      I think I shoved because he could do this with any 2pair(very loose), or pair+draw. Set and Straight are possible but unprobable dont you think?

      It could be that he has a stronger (set or straight) hand but still I think I am paying him here because he looks such a fish to me. :P

      wow, tough.

      His WTS is only 12!!!!!!
      But his AF is almost 7.

      with top 2 i tend to go broke, but its very close. I think folding here is the best choice, but who lays down top two...

      It's MP2 who goes crazy, not SB.

      but yeah tough one... when such a passive station suddenly goes crazy Hero should generally GTFO... but like you said it could easily be a worse 2pair. I think top 2 is worth going broke for.

      Nice catch on the river tho :D

      Damn this looks like one of those super marginal spots. Saying that I can't see him raising so much with anything less then a set. I dunno lol the more I think about this the harder it is for me to decide. MAYBE I would just call the turn and either make a crying call on the river or just fold. But this is damn tough. Really hard to see hero ahead here.

      Seems like MP2 has there 89.
      But because his high vpip, he could also hold there lower two pair, so egtting all-in on the turn is fine.
