      Don't donk here against 3 opponents with mediocre hand. You dont want to see a raise but you can call one bet.

      I would fold it also here. He could have A6 or 77 but these are quite only hands that you beat. He was preflop raiser also so he has probably some high PP.

      I also don't like donking. They often call with overcards or pocket pairs. I would play c/r on the flop. This way you show more strength, extract value from cbet, and protect the hand better. As played I think this is a good fold, the pot is getting big and your hand is vulnerable.

      Hi,


      I would c/c or c/r that flop too, most likely c/c against UTG1's range for c-betting into 3 players.

      As played you don't really have a choice, he likely has a bigger overpair here, just muck it.


      Hope it helps.

      New judgeee, woooo.

      as for the hand. If your going to contibet on this flop with 88, conti lower. cheaper to win. and the board isnt that drawy against a raise.
