      Reluctanly fold here. You need runner/runner to make a hand, and even then it may not be the best hand. No history on MP1 either, and with the SB to act behind you, I'd be more leary on him c/r'ing here.

      Hi,


      I don't think SB is check/raising that often there, he looks decent and if he can recognize that it's better altogether for him to lead strong hands in that spot he has a narrow check/raising range how just big diamonds.

      I'd call most likely since we could be good or drawing good against MP1, and be happy folding the third flushdraw the rare times SB commits himself against both of us on that board. If you wanna save yourself the headache of trying to guess what MP1's range is, you can also just pitch it on the flop as suggested.


      Hope it helps.
