Default Drawing to a Flush

1st hand 9 handed.
all (2000T)
blinds 25-50

Villain is Button
Hero is CO (7 [img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img]8 [img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img])

2 limps
MP1 raise to 200T
fold - fold
HERO- Call
VILLAIN- raise to 1000T
fold - fold - fold - fold
MP1- Call
HERO- Call

FLOP(3175T)- 3 [img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img]4 [img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img]7 [img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img]

MP1- bets 200T
HERO- calls
Villain- raises 1000T (all-in)
MP1- folds
HERO- ??

I realize a fold was the order of the day when villain re-raised pre-flop, so my question is what to do post-flop!
This is my first post so all critics are welcome!

What the hell are you doing preflop calling for half your stack with 78s

You're utterly committed now, you have to call anyway

Oh yeah and what you actually mean is that preflop a fold was in order after the FIRST raise, let alone the re-raise!

Man you've been watching too much television.
78 suited is NOT a good hand. The first raise
to 200T was a message that you didn't belong in
this pot.

Fold to the initial preflop raise which is a tenth of your stack, let alone a reraise.

Once you're on the flop, you have top pair + flush draw. Why are you asking this question? After making two absolutely terrible and moronic preflop calls, it should be easy to make a correct postflop call.

Do I read this right...???

MP1 bets 4xbb, you call with 78s, then it's raised to 1000, HALF the starting chip count...and you call again behind the ORIGINAL bettor?

I had to re-read everything from the forum title on down to be sure this was a hold'em question.
We used to play a game called 'middle-fiddle" when I was a busboy losing my tips to the bartenders for which this would have been a great hand.

For Almost all no limit questions that include "Drawing to a..." ...the answer is fold.
this question also qualifies for a preflop "FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, FOLD"
