      Ok to go broke there, even in 3way? I called instead of raising to keep MP1 in but maybe that wasn't a great idea.

      Hi,


      I'm never folding top set on any flop regardless of what happens, we have too much equity. That being said it'd be a good idea to raise yourself instead of just calling, seeing a turn is a bad thing for you regardless of what it is (if he's a club or 7/6 you might be beat, if it's something else draws are less likely to play with you). Make it $4.2 and call any shove.


      Hope it helps.
