      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.71 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with A:club: , A:diamond:
      3 folds, Hero raises to $0.20, MP3 calls $0.20, CO folds, BU calls $0.20, 2 folds.

      Flop: ($0.67) 7:diamond: , K:club: , 6:heart: (3 players)
      Hero bets $0.45, MP3 calls $0.45, BU raises to $2.53 (All-In), Hero...?

      I'm pretty sure I can go broke against BU due to his midstack and not having enough implieds for a set right? But MP3's call is weird and could be a slowplayed set but could also be 45/89 for draws or if he's bad a Kx. Is it best to fold and avoid variance against 2 players or just push over BU and try to keep it heads up against him since I'm probably ahead of him?

      You can't realistically fold ever, even if you just call and MP3 shoves over.

      As for the call or shove dilemma, if he's a reg it doesn't matter it won't change the outcome no matter what. If he's a fish i think you're better off calling and hoping he somehow talks himself into a committing position with Kx or an OESD. If he just calls the flop, shove any turn.

      Hope it helps.
