      Hi,
      Preflop - is it correct to call after the loose MP1 limps/shoves and the fishy MP3 calls?
      Flop - not sure about the bet size, should I bet at all when side pot is empty?
      Turn - would you call here?

      Thanks!

      Hello,

      Pre-flop: I'd just shove it in there personally, you're closing the action. MP3 already committed $1.5 to the pot knowing that you're still to act behind (althou he probably doesn't realise that).

      As played:

      Flop: Bet more ~$3.20 to 3.40
      Turn: If you bet more on the flop your decision on the turn will be easy... you snap since there's already so much in the pot and you have almost nothing behind.

      Well, if MP1 is loose then you are still in the hand. By the way, if a shortstack make such move, I would call him with 66+ (or77+), AQ+ (unless there is someone still behind).

      Right here, you have limp/coldcaller who you consider as dead money (and better pot odds). However, do not call preflop, but shove.

      Flop: As played, I would bet $2,31 (there is no reason to be more since it is 3-bet pot). You might also check behind (since you lost initiative preflop) to let him bet with worse hands, eventually to make him more willing to call you with worse hands on latter streets.

      Turn: no a second to think about folding. Snap call.
