$10 PLO 6-max: Give up unimproved AAxx facing Pot-Sized-Bet Donk
Merge has some of the loosest players I've seen anywhere. This table makeup (3 people with VPIPs of 70+ and a "tight"er player with a VPIP in the 50s) is very, very typical.

Anyway, I open with AAJ2ss, and get called in 3 spots. Which is not unusual. The flop comes rainbow without my suit, and puts a straight on board with Q-J. The SB leads out into me. I give up here. I don't like it. But, with so many people seeing the flop, I can't think I am in good shape. Even if I am good right here (which I doubt), I am going to have a hard time getting to showdown while still being good. It feels really 'fit or fold' to just give up, but I think continuing here is suicide. Right?
