Raise and see if u can take it down,im guessing just becouse i see it so much a low buy in tourneys that MP2 had a flush draw and they min bet whas meant to cover up that he´s on a draw?.

Do i really want to bloat this flop though? That flop has hit so many hands. We always have the possibility of someone slow playing aswell. The problem with raising is whats going to call us that we beat 4 handed?

This is a pretty dangerous flop and you're against several opponents so just call, you have 4 outs to the nuts and another possible 6 outs.

can we really count our ace and king as outs here? They complete so many 2 pair and straight hands

That is an icky flop. I would call and possible fold or call a reraise depending on the size of the bet. You have a gut shot straight, over cards and backdoor flush draw. The problem is that you have no idea where you stand and that flop hits a lot of hand opponents are likely play. I would call but be ready to let it go in the face of serious action. There is just not enough information to go on and risk overplaying AK in this spot.

I would call and see the turn. Providing one of the other villains does not re-raise to this board. That flop could have easily hit too many hands for me to try to buy the pot.

It's early donkville - wait for a better situation.
