      Hero folds!

      By the way, you shouldn't even call with 44 in CO after 2 front raises... UTG might 4bet and then you've wasted your money.

      Fold preflop.

      Fold flop, because I wouldn't call that a OESD.

      It's just not a very strong straight, you could easily end up on the lowest end of the straight and still get beat.

      Agreed, you're never sure you'll actually get to see a flop. UTG is "very tight and very passive" yet he decided to open raise, there is a good chance he's got you crushed and depending on whether he never actually reraises you'll sometimes see a flop, sometimes get blown off by a 4bet. MP1 looks a very aggressive player against whom you probably don't have strong implied odds since he could have garbage there.


      I don't hate the play in theory but it's risky and you don't need it really at nl5, better stay away altogether.


      Hope it helps.

      After this hand he player very few hands again and the only flop he went to showdown was with him having QQ.

      Kind regards,
