      Till the turn is ok.
      Good fold on the turn.
      You have call 22 into 81 so you need arround 31%. While having 9 outs for the flush and 3 more for the straight you have arround 26%.

      How can he fold river guys? He folded on the turn :D

      You can play it the way you did, BUT I usually like raising and getting it in on the flop because:

      MP3 very likely doesn't have a strong hand since he just flatted. The board is super drawy and he's most likely gonna be raising his big hands.

      Also, SB is a midstack and the NFD against a midstack = the nuts.

      The problem here is that MP3 is deep with us and getting it in against him isn't so great. SO, it depends on what kind of player he is. Like I said, I believe he'll have many weak hands in his range, making our equity really good. But if you think his range here is super strong (sets or better), calling is fine.

      The general idea here is that by shoving you should have a lot of fe vs MP3 AND a lot of equity against the midstacker.
