      Calling isn't bad since MP3 has absolutely nothing most of the time and thanks to BU being bad, BB shoving can't reopen the betting so we're guaranteed a river card.

      I guess the final decision depends on how likely you think BU is to pay you off with a worse hand. Our outs aren't completely obvious, we might have as many as 20 of them, and i doubt he's ever folding whatever he potted the turn with to a river bet.

      I know why folding is appealing it's not bad either, since the situation looks like it can get very complicated, but most of the time it's not going to.

      Hope it helps.
