      Yea you maybe getting decent odds but you are drawing to a lower straight on a flashing board against 3 villains in a free play -> Easy-Easy fold on the flop. :)

      Hi Tim,

      I agree with Maya that you must fold flop.

      1 - It's a bottom 1 card OESD, very very weak.
      2 - 5 way pot. I'd say you are beat over 90% of the time here.

      You can't count more than 3 or 4 outs here. 5:1 on flop is not good enough, besides, it's a freeplay and you have no money invested in the pot so just wait for a better spot :)

      ánd you have to discount outs against a Flush !
      I tend to go to the showdown as cheap as possible with the idiot end. So I'm definitly not going broke with any idiot end 1-card straight.


      Best regards,
