      I prefer to C/C flop evaluate later streets than C/R, there are not many draws out and this being a multiway pot it feels like you are overplaying your hand and are simply isolating yourself against better.

      Hi,


      I'll also just check/call the flop, raising doesn't have any clear cut reasons. It's true you sometimes get peels from overcards and 6x/77-99, but you're out of position against MP2 so it'll be tough to play correctly afterward against an unknown. Not to mention him having JJ+ is a very real possibility. If you feel like you'll get him to call you on the flop with something like overcards/6x/77-99 but 3-bet JJ+, AND call more bets later on with worse pairs, then you can raise/fold in that spot with the intention of stacking off against his calling range.


      Hope it helps.
