      Fold flop IMO. He's giving you horrible odds, the board is paired and you're OOP. So it'll be pretty hard to get paid off properly in case you hit.

      Hi,


      On the flop i would click it back, i think there is a decent chance that we are flipping with CO and he's almost all-in already, with the overlay in the pot it's fine to play for stacks against him. MP3 is going away most of the time unless he has 6x or 33 exactly, i don't think he'd check back a biggish pocket pair when MP2 checks the flop. If MP3 3bet or coldcalled my raise i'd be pretty worried, especially if he coldcalled i'd almost be hoping for a miss on the turn to ease the decision process :p

      As played on the river MP3's line throughout the whole hand looks super strong, if he had 6x with the 5 turn and the 7 river he almost always has a boat now, this looks more like he had 66/33 all along. Since he might sometimes play a K-high flush that way we can't fold getting 5:1 but it doesn't look so good.


      Hope it helps.

      ty,

      what do you mean by "clicking back" and "overlay"?

      Hi,


      Sorry.

      By "clicking it back" i mean minraising. Most of the time it won't matter as MP3 will fold very often anyway, but there's a chance we'll get MP3 to fold some stuff he would have overcalled with, as he could make our life difficult on a blank turn with position. And if he doesn't fold, he didn't only overcall the flop, he check/coldcalled a raise, which tells us basically that our flushdraw is no good because i don't see him do that with anything else than 33 honestly. It's not really raising for information, it's just an added bonus to the fact that i want to get CO all-in immediately if i'm gonna play with him.

      By "overlay" i just mean the money already in the pot, the dead money. It makes no sense for us to get into a coinflip with CO as this is neutral EV, but with the extra money already in the pot it's actually +EV.


      Hope it helps.
