      Final Pot: $3,40

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows a pair of fives (6c Ac)
      BB shows a full-house, sevens full of fives (7d 7c)
      UTG1 shows two pairs, jacks and fives (Jd Jh)

      BB wins with a full-house, sevens full of fives (7d 7c)

      He overbets on flop, and I'm on OESD and back door nut flush draw. What to do in this kind of situations?

      Calling UTG's flop overbet is not the best play because I don't like calling overbets with only a draw... but because you'll be in position on the turn and BB will likely fold it might be just about ok... but I would definitely fold to BB's check/raise in a multi pot.

      You can safely fold this when BB shoves.
      I'd even be folding this when UTG overbets slightly, against two players we just don't have the equity to continue here.

      Hi,


      If all your outs are clean i think you have implieds to try and crack UTG1's hand because he seems very attached to it, and even tho he doesn't have a full stack it's still enough for OESD+over.

      It's close tho, so since you can't be sure there isn't a flushdraw out there or that your overcard outs are live, it's likely safer just not to bother, considering BB is also still left to act.


      Hope it helps.
