      I would fold preflop. As played, fold flop.

      Hi,


      Once again you have small stacks in the blinds, so you don't want to play marginal hands. Plus since both the blinds called your raise, without being too results-oriented, you probably knew they were very loose already. 87o is not nearly strong enough to isolate the limper in that situation, even with position, and it will put you in a lot of difficult situations postflop.

      On the flop you have the bottom end of a straight draw, with a flush draw on board, which means 6 live outs maximum. When CO overbets the pot 3x, you have absolutely no reason to gamble here in a 4-way pot with a hand that weak. Just pitch it.


      Hope it helps.
