      Known players:

      0,25/0,5 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.69 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with A:club: , 9:club:
      Hero raises to $1,50, MP3 calls $1,50, 2 folds, SB raises to $4,25, BB calls $3,75, Hero calls $2,75, MP3 calls $2,75.

      Flop: ($17,00) T:club: , 5:heart: , 4:club: (4 players)
      SB bets $4,75, BB folds, Hero ? Mp3 ?

      If i push mp3 calls with best hands folds rest dont expect sb to have good hand very often

      if i call mp3 might be induced to make some raise due to our obvious weakness (his stats indicate is is capable of doing that)
      but do i want that ?
      if i call and mp3 raises to 19 id probably have to push my hand in
      if i call and mp3 pushes AI can what would i do then ?
      (I beat most other draws but a lot of them might call aswell, my equity vs madehands weaker than 2pair is pretty decent due to my 12 outs)

      Just call

      If MP3 pushes and SB calls, also call.

      If MP3 pushes, SB folds, fold.

      fold pf, since you´re against very strong range and are being dominated too many times if you flop 9 or A

      Flop: your only option is imo shove
      Since it looks very strong then MP can easily fold there Tx and weaker hands also since Sb only bet 1/3rd pot he can easily have there just AK or AQ that he´d b/f if you shove
      So you have a lot of fold equity and if get called then likely 40-50% equity which is not bad to get all-in in huge pot
