+1. Our equity vs a bet and raise is not good, and we're out of position.
If I have a strong FD I sometimes call with position to induce bad calls from the fish who will have weaker draws and will also pay off when we both hit. We have neither position nor anything but the weakest realistic draw.
I usually lead this flop as a standard though fwiw. Fish calls all gutters, fds, sds, doesn't raise overpairs that often, and the reg will play really straight forward to a lead into 2 people so we just shut down if called/raised unless we improve.
