      Hi,


      I don't think the way you played it is wrong by any means, tho the fact is you're 2-outing or worse if you're beat and there is a fish in there with only a potsized bet very likely to shove it in on that board with any 2 broadways / any Ax and some guy with position on you and 150bb effective stuck in-between. I wouldn't mind you just checking that flop and reevaluating after both of them acted.

      If MP3 bets and the fish jams you can get away, if MP3 checks and the fish jams frankly I don't think it's worth a call either unless you're confident he's shoving all draws in there, if MP3 bets and the fish folds it sucks somewhat but most people won't bet into the shortstacked guy without Ax+ so I think you just folding instead of building a pot out of position with 2 outs wouldn't be the worst idea either.

      River is fine, cooler if he has AA/JJ somehow.


      Hope it helps.
