      Of course I could fold this preflop, but I have position against two big stacks with quite a strong drawing hand. On the flop, I hit a nice TP with an OESD. The preflop aggressor bets OOP - I could raise here, but I would isolate myself against stronger hands and could only continue the turn if I get my straight. On the turn, he barrels for a second time - retrospectively, I think it would be better to lay down the hand here? He usually has a better TP or an overpair here and my implieds don't justify a call anymore? If I call on the turn, I have to call this small bet on the river.

      So...lay down on the turn? Just asking for confirmation ;) .

      I raise preflop

      re-raise flop

      as played you have to call a turn, possible fold on river
