      i think its alright to play check/call

      if you chose to bet out, you would have to fold to a raise. by playing c/c, you might 1) get a free card 2) give yourself the chance to evaluate the odds given to you. so just call the flop bet.

      Difficult imo.

      I don't think you have any fold equity if you shove over the bet/call. So it's call or fold for me.

      you get odds of 3.4:1 for one street which isn't quite enough. However, if you hit your flush you often get the necessary implied odds against 2 players especially with an A on the flop.

      So, I think it's ok to call on Flop and fold Turn if you don't hit but I don't think you make a mistake by folding on the flop either.

      Hey elhh82,

      with FD alone and multiway pot it's best to stay passive and play c/c, you don't get the necessary FE and you will almost surely have to give up to a reraise.

      As played, I would call flop as you will probably get the rest of needed odds from implied odds, so calling should be +EV.
