      I don't like raising the flop here. MP1 bet REALLY big into 3 players. If we think about his range, we're really not doing well equity-wise. Even if he has something like KT, he has 40% equity against us! Not couting the fact he could already have us beat with KJ, QT, K9, 99, JJ and whatnot. Aside from that, CO flatted his huge bet, which also shows some strength.

      Even though it sounds really weak, I'd actually fold this on the flop, without reads! We have invested very little on this pot and our equity is really average-bad. If we decid to put money in here, we're playing for stacks and we don't want that when we've invested so little, unless we have a really big hand!

      So just muck flop :evil:
