      Also because a pot sized bet costs you alot more than your smallest flush draw is worth. Youd need him to call a substantial turn bet if you hit the flush, and another diamond causing you to donk is going to be near on turning your hand over for him to see.

      Probably fold this preflop. As a rule you want at least 45s, because that way a 23 flop still gives you OESFD. 34 has a gutshot SFD on an A2 flop. Its a small difference I guess but enough to get me off anything lower than 45s.

      i guess a call may be alright, but you are going to play OOP
      i think its better to play tighter and play 54s and above

      Hello,
      Its ok to call it with 2 more callers before you.
      Im calling at least once.We're not calling with this hand in order to fold it against a single bet, when it hits. MP1 is the PFA and is likely to have a strong overpair, which will pay off even with another .
      Call flop, c/f turn if you dont improve. C/c if you catch a pair or OESD. raise with the made flush.

      Best regards,
