      I'm almost always just calling. Villain doesn't look like he has any intention to donk/fold when he does that into 3 other players, which means if we raise first we have no fold equity and most likely we'll get shoved on by BB with his sets/two pairs hands.

      CO and UTG could wake up with a monster as well against which we'll end up committed or close to it unless it goes 3-bet and jam behind us, in which case depending on pot odds we might find a fold.

      By calling we just keep our options opened instead of possible getting blown off our draw/forced to go broke against a nutted range, and it's never a bad call with likely 8 solid outs + blockers to upper straights / split straights.

      Hope it helps.
