      Well you have only 46% equity against a 70% range on this flop.

      The problem is if you raise, you probably will get called by the big stacks when they are ahead, and they will fold when they will be behind.

      I prefer just calling here and fold is somebody raise after.

      Hi,


      The turn will never help us whereas it could really own us if it ends up being a multiway pot still. I'm also shoving over to end the hand and taking my chances with my overpair against what is obviously a bunch of bad players.


      Hope it helps.
