      Hi,


      I'd fold preflop I don't think it's worth it. You'll be out of position for the whole hand and you have no idea what the halfstack MP2 is going to do. He might limp/3bet, he might limp/fold, basically you have no guarantee you'll get to see a multiway pot, which is what you want with a hand like this. A6s isn't really worth calling 5x and putting you into that ugly spot.

      As played on the flop I would check. That flop hits a lot of hands, so we don't have much fold equity at all against 2 players, we'd hate for our lead to get raised / shoved on when we have good equity in the pot.

      As played on the turn any of them could have made trips, none of them is folding Kx ever. Again I'd check and see what happens, our fold equity is low, we're still out of position against 2 players, our turn bet would be committing against MP2 and it's now a very real possibility that one of them is going to push us off our draw by jamming Tx.


      Hope it helps.
