      It's better to fold preflop as you alluded to.

      Flop should be call since you are doing decently against MP1's range, but he isn't necessarily going to call with worse hands if you raise. Turn will usually be a fold if he keeps betting.

      As played just fold to the flop reraise.

      This :) You might be ahead of he's c-betting stuff like JJ/AK but he's never calling a raise with those and when he does have you beat you're just going to get 3bet off your few outs, so it's pointless really.


      Hope it helps.
