2/5 NLHE Borgata
UTG straddle. Thinks he's very good. Is questionably competent. Is playing $89 total and is still straddling. Berating the biggest donator. I've attempted to get him to stop harassing the donator to very little avail.
+1 limps $10.
I make it $55 with 76ss.
Donator to my left calls with $220 behind. Button reg calls ($400 eff). Straddle ships $89 total. This is not a full raise so it is the max that can be bet preflop now. Limper folds, I call, donator calls, and button reg calls. Pot is $373.
Flop is 885r with one spade. I have the open ender and a backdoor flush draw. My 7 and 6 might both be live, but I have no idea at this point.
There is a side pot here, UTG is all in. I'm first to act in a 3 way dry side pot with a rather good flop for this hand in this situation.
Normally, there's not much of a reason to bet into a dry side pot if you're likely behind the all-in player. But in this case, I don't have a hand, but I have significant equity.
I have a donator to my left, unlikely to fold at this point with the pot so bloated. I've seen him get it in with just overs in big pots multi-way. Legit donator. He might fold preflop, but once he's in a hand, he desperately wants to see all 5 cards.
Regarding the button, he'll go with it if he has any over pair, but that's it (unless he smashed big).
So here's the question:
Do you bet into this side pot for value? Semi-bluff lead? Is that a thing? ha. Is my equity enough to want to get it in with the all-in player and shut the other two out? How do I feel when they call since I'm just getting more money for my straight draw when it hits?
Thoughts? Do we lead here? If not, what's the plan?
